FORECAST 30-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 30-JAN-09

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

FRIDAY, 30-JAN-09, 7:02

HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS IN CONTROL OVER OUR AREA BRINGING WITH IT CLEAR SKIES AND MILD WEATHER THROUGH NEXT TUESDAY. ON OR ABOUT THURSDAY, AND THERE IS STILL SOME DOUBT AS TO THE TIMING, THAT HIGH PRESSURE WEAKENS AND IS NUDGED EASTWARD BY AN APPROACHING PACIFIC STORM. I EXPECT AN INCREASE IN CLOUDS WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION ON THURSDAY OR FRIDAY, PARTICULARLY IN THE HIGH COUNTRY. IF THIS STORM DOES INDEED MAKE IT OUR WAY, SNOW LEVELS WILL MOST LIKELY BE QUITE HIGH. WE WILL KEEP OUR EYE ON THIS SYSTEM AS IT EVOLVES.

FOR THE OWENS VALLEY:

TODAY: SUNNY SKIES WITH HIGHS AROUND 66. LIGHT NORTHWEST WIND.
TONIGHT: MOSTLY CLEAR WITH LOWS AROUND 24. WEST WIND 3 - 5 MPH.
SATURDAY: LOTS OF SUNSHINE. HIGHS AROUND 65. NORTHWEST WIND 5 - 7 MPH.
SATURDAY NIGHT: MAINLY CLEAR WITH EVENING LOWS NEAR 31. NORTHWEST WIND 5 -15 MPH.

FOR MAMMOTH LAKES:

TODAY: SUNNY BLUE SKIES WITH HIGHS AROUND 47. NORTHEAST WIND 5 - 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: GENERALLY CLEAR WITH LOWS AROUND 23. WEST WIND 5 MPH.
SATURDAY: MOSTLY SUNNNY WITH HIGHS NEAR 46. WEST WIND 5 - 10 MPH.
SATURDAY NIGHT: MOSTLY CLEAR WITH EVENING LOWS NEAR 24. NORTHEAST WIND 5 MPH.

FOR THE REST OF MONO COUNTY:

TODAY: SUNNY BLUE SKIES WITH HIGHS 47 - 57. NORTH WIND 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: MOSTLY CLEAR WITH LOWS 13 - 23. LIGHT WIND.
SATURDAY: MAINLY SUNNY WITH HIGHS 45 - 55. NORTHWEST WIND 10 MPH.
SATURDAY NIGHT: MOSTLY CLEAR WITH LOWS 12 - 22. NORTH WIND 10 MPH. RIDGE GUSTS TO 50.

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 SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE.
