FORECAST 27-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.

FORECAST 27-MAR-09

Postby dmatt » Fri Mar 27, 2009 8:55 am

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, 27-MAR-09, MORNING REPORT

CLEAR SKIES AND WARMING TEMPERATURES, WITH MUCH REDUCED WINDS TODAY AND TOMORROW AS WEAK HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN OFF THE WEST COAST. THAT RIDGE WEAKENS A BIT AS ANOTHER TROUGH MOVES THROUGH THE PACNW ON SUNDAY AND BRUSHES OUR AREA. THIS WILL CREATE GUSTY WINDS AND A DIP IN TEMPERATURES FOR BOTH THE OWENS VALLEY AND MONO COUNTY. THOSE WINDS WILL REDUCE ON MONDAY AS THE WEST COAST RIDGE REBUILDS ITSELF. THIS ACTIVE SPRING PATTERN, WITH A SERIES OF SYSTEMS PUSHING THROUGH THE PACNW WILL CONTINUE OFF AND ON THROUGH NEXT WEEK AND ALLOW FOR GUSTY WINDS AT TIMES, WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS IN THE HIGH COUNTRY. FOR SURE THOUGH, REAL NICE WEATHER IS IN STORE FOR US HERE IN THE BEAUTIFUL EASTERN SIERRA TODAY AND SATURDAY.
