FORECAST 28-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 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

TUESDAY, 28-APR-09, MORNING REPORT

SURFACE PRESSURE GRADIENTS CONTINUE TO TIGHTEN THROUGH WEDNESDAY PROVIDING US WITH GUSTY AFTERNOON WINDS. WITH THIS THE SKIES WILL REMAIN MOSTLY CLEAR WITH TEMPERATURES RUNNING ABOUT NORMAL. THIS IS ALL DUE TO A LONG WAVE TROUGH REMAINING OVER THE PACNW. THAT TROUGH WILL MOVE EAST ON THURSDAY ALLOWING A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE TO BUILD OVER OUR AREA GIVING US A SLIGHT WARMING TREND AND KEEPING THINGS ON THE DRY SIDE. FRIDAY LOOKS TO REMAIN ABOUT THE SAME, THEN AN EASTERN PACIFIC TROUGH MOVES ONSHORE FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY INCREASING THE CHANCES OF PRECIPITATION FOR OUR AREA. RIGHT NOW THE WEATHER LOOKS TO REMAIN UNSETTLED FOR SUNDAY. STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES.
