FORECAST 17-APR-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 17-APR-09

Postby dmatt » Fri Apr 17, 2009 7:17 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, 17-APR-09, MORNING REPORT

AN UPPER RIDGE CONTINUES TO BUILD OVER CENTRAL CALIFORNIA TODAY. THAT RIDGE WILL AMPLIFY OVER THE WEST, REACHING ITS PEAK ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK. WHAT THAT MEANS FOR US IS A DRY PATTERN WITH A SIGNIFICANT WARMING TREND THROUGH TUESDAY, WITH TEMPERATURES 10 TO 15 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL BY THEN. THIS HAS ALL THE MAKINGS FOR SPECTACULAR EASTERN SIERRA WEATHER. A MODERATE NORTH-SOUTH SURFACE PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL GIVE SOME AREAS LIGHT BREEZES EACH DAY. ON WEDNESDAY, AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE MOVES IN OFF THE WEST COAST AND THIS WILL BRING THE POSSIBILITY OF GUSTY WINDS AND A SLIGHT CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION TO THE UPPER ELEVATIONS OF THE SIERRA THROUGH FRIDAY OF NEXT WEEK. THIS IS STILL A LONG WAY OFF SO STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES.

FOR THE OWENS VALLEY:

TODAY: SUNNY BLUE SKIES. HIGHS IN THE MID 70S. WINDS NW 5 - 15 MPH.
THIS EVENING: MOSTLY CLEAR. LOWS IN THE UPPER 30S. WINDS N 5 - 10 MPH.
