FORECAST 23-SEP-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.

AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE IS BUILDING IN OVER THE REGION AND WE CAN EXPECT MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES AND A MILD WARMING TREND THROUGH THURSDAY. HIGH TEMPS SHOULD RIDE UP ABOUT 5 - 10 DEGREES IN THIS TIME PERIOD. THEN A WEAK TROUGH DEVELOPS OFF THE WEST COAST ON FRIDAY AND IT MOVES SLOWLY INLAND OVER THE WEEKEND AND INTO THE EARLY PART OF NEXT WEEK. TEMPS WILL TREND DOWN A FEW DEGREES DURING THIS PERIOD WITH A FEW CLOUDS OVER THE CREST. THERE WILL BE A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SOME ISOLATED CONVECTION OVER THE SIERRA EITHER SATURDAY OR SUNDAY FROM THIS TROUGH. OTHERWISE WE ARE LOOKING AT MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES AND DRY CONDITIONS INTO TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK.

TODAY FOR THE OWENS VALLEY: MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE NEAR 86 FOLLOWED BY OVERNIGHT LOWS IN THE LOWER 40S. SOUTHEAST WIND 5 - 10 MPH.
