FORECAST 14-OCT-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

TUESDAY, 14-OCT-08, 7:08 AM

THE WINDS AND THE COLD, WHICH HAVE PLAGUED US SINCE FRIDAY, WILL FINALLY DIMINISH TODAY, AS A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN OFF THE WESTERN US AND SHIFTS THAT COLD LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM FROM THE WEEKEND EASTWARD. THIS WILL USHER IN BEAUTIFUL FALL WEATHER WITH DRY CONDITIONS AND WARMING TEMPERATURES THROUGH FRIDAY. WE CAN EXPECT 5 - 7 DEGREES OF WARMING TODAY FOLLOWED BY AN ADDITIONAL 3- 5 DEGREES ON WEDNESDAY. SLIGHT COOLING STARTS ON SATURDAY INTO THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK, BUT STILL ON THE MILD SIDE.

TODAY FOR THE OWENS VALLEY: SUNNY. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE NEAR 74 FOLLOWED BY OVERNIGHT LOWS IN THE MID 30S. NORTHWEST WIND 5 - 7 MPH.

WEDNESDAY FOR THE OWENS VALLEY: SUNNY SKIES. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE NEAR 80 AND OVERNIGHT LOWS AROUND 37. NORTHWEST WIND 5 - 8 MPH.

TODAY FOR THE TOWN OF MAMMOTH LAKES: SUNNY BLUE SKIES. DAYTIME HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE NEAR 60 AND EVENING LOWS AROUND 30. NORTHEAST WIND 5 MPH.

WEDNESDAY FOR THE TOWN OF MAMMOTH LAKES: SUNNY. DAYTIME HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE AROUND 63 AND EVENING LOWS NEAR 35. SOUTHWEST WIND 5 MPH.

TODAY FOR MONO COUNTY: SUNNY. HIGH DAYTIME TEMPERATURES WILL RANGE FROM 56 - 66 AND EVENING LOWS 27 - 37. LIGHT WIND BECOMING NORTH @ 10 MPH.

WEDNESDAY FOR MONO COUNTY: SUNNY AGAIN. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL RANGE FROM 60 - 70 AND OVERNIGHT LOWS 29 - 39. SOUTHWEST WIND 10 BECOMING LIGHT.

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.
