FORECAST 13-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.

EASTERN SIERRA WEATHER FORECASTER

WEDNESDAY, 13-MAY-09, MORNING REPORT

LIGHT WINDS TODAY BEHIND A WEAK FRONT PASSING THROUGH THE PACNW BRINGING US SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES. THOSE WINDS WERE NOT LIGHT AT ALL IN MOJAVE YESTERDAY WHERE GUSTS OF 73 MPH WERE RECORDED. AN UPPER RIDGE BEGINS TO BULGE NORTH ON THURSDAY THEN NOSES OVER CALIFORNIA FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY, THEN COVERS MUCH OF THE WESTERN US ON SUNDAY. THIS WILL BRING RISING TEMPERATURES TO OUR ENTIRE AREA, WITH POSSIBLE RECORD HIGHS ON SUNDAY INTO MONDAY. WITH THIS, A SURGE OF MID LEVEL MOISTURE FROM THE SOUTHEAST WILL BRING IN A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE CREST MONDAY AND TUESDAY. THIS SHOULD COOL THINGS OFF JUST A BIT.
