FORECAST 16-MAR-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, 16-MAR-09, MORNING REPORT

WELL, WE ALMOST HAVE TWO SEPARATE FORECASTS TODAY. FOR MONO COUNTY, A TROUGH PASSING THROUGH OREGON WILL KEEP THE SKIES PARTLY TO MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH VERY WINDY CONDITIONS AND A CHANCE OF SOME TRACE PRECIPITATION OVER THE CREST. FOR INYO COUNTY, MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES, WARM TEMPERATURES AND MILD BREEZES WILL PREVAIL. ON TUESDAY BOTH AREAS FALL MORE IN LINE WITH A RIDGE BUILDING IN OFF THE COAST, REDUCING THE WINDS IN MONO COUNTY AND KEEPING TEMPERATURES SPRING-LIKE FOR INYO THROUGH FRIDAY, WHICH IS THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING.
