FORECAST 02-JUN-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 02-JUN-09

Postby dmatt » Tue Jun 02, 2009 7:57 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

TUESDAY, 02-JUN-09, MORNING REPORT

THERES LOTS OF POTENTIAL TSTM ACTIVITY FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS AT THE LEAST. A BIG CLOSED LOW OFF THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA COAST WILL GRADUALLY MOVE INLAND THIS WEEK. THIS LOW HAS A LOT OF MOISTURE AND DYNAMICS AND THIS COULD TRIGGER TSTM ACTION OVER THE MOUNTAINS AND HIGHER TERRAIN TODAY AND TOMORROW. ISOLATED HEAVY DOWNPOURS AND HAIL ARE A REAL POSSIBILITY. BY THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR SOME DEEP SUB TROPICAL MOISTURE OUT IN THE SOUTHWEST GETTING ENTRAINED INTO THAT LOW. THIS COULD REALLY CREATE SOME INTERESTING UNSETTLED ACTION. WITH ALL OF THIS, GUSTY WINDS SHOULD BE EXPECTED EACH DAY, PARTICULARLY IN THE AFTERNOONS. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL THROUGH THE WEEK.

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT AS THE LOW MOVES ONSHORE AND TEMPERATURES DROP, SO WILL THE SNOW LEVELS IN THE UPPER ELEVATIONS OF THE SIERRA AND THE WHITE MTNS. THIS IS QUITE AN EVOLVING PROCESS SO STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES.

FOR THE OWENS VALLEY:

TODAY: ISOLATED SHOWERS & THUNDERSTORMS LIKELY. HIGHS IN THE MID 80S. WINDS S 15 - 20 MPH.
THIS EVENING: MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS. LOWS IN THE LOWER 50S. WINDS S 10 -15 MPH.
