FORECAST 08-JAN-09

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

THURSDAY, 08-JAN-09, 7:30

HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS IN CONTROL UNTIL LATER TODAY, THEN A WEAKENING COLD FRONT STUMBLES THROUGH THE AREA BRINGING SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES, AN INCREASE IN THE NORTHERLY WINDS AHEAD OF THE FRONT, AND THAT'S ABOUT ALL. PRECIPITATION WILL HAVE A HARD TIME GETTING OVER THE CREST, SO MOSTLY DRY CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL OVER OUR AREA. AN AMPLIFIED RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE THEN SETTLES IN GIVING US DRY WEATHER AND A SLIGHT WARMING TREND INTO THE MID PART OF NEXT WEEK. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN ABOVE NORMAL ESPECIALLY IN THE UPPER ELEVATIONS.
