FORECAST 01-AUG-08

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

FORECAST FOR THE OWENS VALLEY, MAMMOTH AND MONO COUNTY
PROVIDED BY DENNIS MATTINSON
EASTERN SIERRA WEATHER FORECASTER
KSRW 92.5 / 96.5 FM AND TV-33

FRIDAY, 01-AUG-08, 7:10 AM

A WEAK SHORTWAVE WILL MOVE THROUGH NORTHERN CALIFORNIA TODAY CREATING A FEW CLOUDS, A SLIGHT CHANCE OF T-STORMS IN MONO COUNTY AND SOME WINDY CONDITIONS IN THE HIGH COUNTRY. THE OWENS VALLEY WILL CONTINUE THE TREND OF WARM TEMPS AND AFTERNOON BREEZES. A MORE VIGOROUS TROUGH MOVES ONTO THE COAST SATURDAY, COOLING THINGS DOWN SLIGHTLY, CREATING SOME WINDS AND BRINGING IN A FETCH OF MONSOON MOISTURE TO OUR AREA. I DON'T THINK MUCH WILL HAPPEN IN THE WAY OF T-STORM ACTION, BUT WILL KEEP IN A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR THE RECORD. ANOTHER LOW MOVES THROUGH NORTHERN CALIF ON TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY GIVING THE HIGH COUNTRY ANOTHER SHOT AT T-STORM ACTIVITY. SMOKE FROM THE TELEGRAPH HAS REDUCED SOMEWHAT AND WITH THE GOOD MIX OF WIND SHOULD KEEP OUR VISIBILITIES FAIRLY GOOD OVER THE WEEKEND.

TODAY FOR THE OWENS VALLEY: MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 100 AND EVENING LOWS IN THE UPPER 50S. LIGHT WIND BECOMING SOUTH @ 10 - 15 MPH.

TOMORROW FOR THE OWENS VALLEY: SUNNY SKIES. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 98 AND EVENING LOWS IN THE UPPER 50S. LIGHT WIND BECOMING SOUTH @ 11 - 14 MPH G TO 21.

TODAY FOR THE TOWN OF MAMMOTH LAKES: MOSTLY SUNNY WITH SOME HAZE. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 80 EVENING LOWS AROUND 50. WEST WIND 5 - 15 MPH G TO 25.

TOMORROW FOR THE TOWN OF MAMMOTH LAKES: MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 78 AND EVENING LOWS AROUND 46. SOUTHWEST WIND 5 - 15 MPH.

TODAY FOR MONO COUNTY: PARTLY SUNNY. A SLIGHT CHANCE OF T-STORMS AROUND MONO LAKE. HIGH TEMPERATURES RANGING FROM 82 - 92 AND EVENING LOWS 43 - 53. WEST WIND 10 - 15 MPH.

TOMORROW FOR MONO COUNTY: SUNNY. HIGH TEMPERATURES RANGING FROM 75 - 85 AND EVENING LOWS 38 - 48. SOUTHWEST WIND 5 - 15 MPH G TO 30.

NOTE: DENNIS' FORECAST ORIGINATES FROM THE FORT INDEPENDENCE EPA METEOROLOGICAL STATION. BECAUSE WEATHER CONDITIONS VARY GREATLY FROM LOCATION TO LOCATION IN THE EASTERN SIERRA, THIS FORECAST IS FOR A SPECIFIC AREA AND TIME FRAME.
