FORECAST 29-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.

Postby dmatt » Fri May 29, 2009 7:59 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, 29-MAY-09, MORNING REPORT

AN UPPER LOW CONTINUES TO SPIN OFF THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA COAST, WHILE A LARGE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS INLAND. THIS WILL CONTINUE A SOUTHEASTERLY FLOW AND THE THREAT OF SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IN THE HIGH COUNTRY WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE IN THE VALLEY'S. THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TO AFFECT THE HIGHER TERRAIN, THOUGH NOT AS WIDESPREAD AS TODAY, OVER THE WEEKEND. THEN A LARGE EASTERN PACIFIC TROUGH APPROACHES THEN HOVERS OFF THE COAST THROUGH MOST OF NEXT WEEK. SO, I AM KEEPING A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE MOUNTAINS AND GUSTY WINDS IN SOME AREAS, THROUGH THURSDAY OR FRIDAY OF NEXT WEEK. TEMPERATURES FOR THIS TIME PERIOD SHOULD RUN ABOUT NORMAL, BUT WILL VARY GREATLY DUE TO SCATTERED CLOUD COVER.

FOR THE OWENS VALLEY:

TODAY: MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS & THUNDERSTORMS. HIGHS IN THE UPPER 80S. WINDS SE 7 - 10 MPH.
THIS EVENING: MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH A 20% CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS. LOWS IN THE MID 50S. WINDS SE 5 - 8 MPH.
SATURDAY: A 20% CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. HIGHS IN THE UPPER 80S. WINDS S 6 - 9 MPH.
SATURDAY EVENING: PARTLY CLOUDY WITH A 20% CHANCE OF SCATTERED SHOWERS & THUNDERSTORMS. LOWS IN THE MID 50S. WINDS NW 5 - 10 MPH.

FOR THE MAMMOTH LAKES AREA:

TODAY: MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH A 60% CHANCE OF SHOWERS & THUNDERSTORMS. HIGHS IN THE MID 60S. WINDS S 5 - 10 MPH.
THIS EVENING: SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS LIKELY. LOWS IN THE MID 40S. WINDS W 5 - 10 MPH.

FOR MONO COUNTY

TODAY: SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IN THE AFTERNOON. HIGHS 72 - 82. WINDS S 10 MPH.
THIS EVENING: MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH ISOLATED SHOWERS & THUNDERSTORMS. LOWS 38 - 48. WINDS SW 10 MPH.
SATURDAY: MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. HIGHS 68 - 78. WINDS S 10 MPH.
SATURDAY EVENING: MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE. LOWS 36 - 46. WINDS SW 10 - 15 MPH.
