FORECAST 24-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.

EASTERN SIERRA WEATHER FORECASTER

WEDNESDAY, 24-SEP-08, 7:02 AM

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS THE OVERALL WEATHER FEATURE THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. WE WILL HAVE MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES AND TEMPERATURES JUST ABOVE NORMAL. A WEAK TROUGH PASSING TO OUR NORTH WILL GIVE THE HIGH COUNTRY INCREASING SOUTHWEST WINDS FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS. RIDGE TOP WINDS WILL CLIMB UP TO ABOUT 40 MPH BY THURSDAY. LITTLE CHANGE IN OUR WEATHER OVER THE WEEKEND, MAYBE A FEW DEGREES COOLING, AS AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH SITS OFF THE WEST COAST AND THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS TO OUR EAST. THEN THAT TROUGH MOVES INLAND ON MONDAY WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF SOME MODEST BUILD UPS AND A SLIGHT CHANCE OF CONVECTION OVER THE CREST. MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES WILL RETURN ON TUESDAY.

TODAY FOR THE OWENS VALLEY: SUNNY SKIES. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE NEAR 89 FOLLOWED BY OVERNIGHT LOWS IN THE MID 40S. SOUTHEAST WIND 5 - 15 MPH.

TOMORROW FOR THE OWENS VALLEY: SUNNY. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE NEAR 90 AND OVERNIGHT LOWS AROUND 47. SOUTHWEST WIND 5 - 15 MPH GUSTING TO 20.
