FORECAST 19-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.

MONDAY, 19-JAN-09, 7:04

LARGE SCALE RIDGE IS STILL PREVALENT OVER THE WESTERN USA WITH WARM TEMPERATURES AND DRY WEATHER EXPECTED THROUGH TUESDAY. THEN GRADUAL COOLING LATER WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY AS A WEAK TROUGH MOVES THROUGH, BRINGING CLOUDS AND A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SNOW SHOWERS IN THE HIGH COUNTRY AND LIGHT RAIN IN THE VALLEYS. SNOW LEVELS WILL REMAIN QUITE HIGH WITH THIS SYSTEM BECAUSE OF ITS SOUTHERN TRAJECTORY.
