FORECAST 08-MAY-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.

DRY QUASI ZONAL FLOW WITH WEAK HIGH PRESSURE IS THE ORDER OF THE DAY. THIS WILL GIVE US BLUE SKIES AND WARM TEMPERATURES THROUGH THE WEEKEND. AN EMBEDDED IMPULSE WILL CAUSE THE WINDS TO PICKUP JUST A BIT ON SATURDAY, BUT OTHER THAN THAT, GREAT WEATHER IS IN STORE FOR US. SLIGHT COOLING ON MONDAY AS A LOW MOVING THROUGH THE PACNW DROPS TEMPERATURES A LITTLE.
