FORECAST 26-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 26-JUN-09

Postby dmatt » Fri Jun 26, 2009 7:56 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, 26-JUN-09, MORNING REPORT

THE CUTOFF LOW THAT CAUSED SOME BREEZY CONDITIONS AND A FEW SHOWERS LAST NIGHT IS MOVING EASTWARD. STILL A VERY SLIGHT CHANCE OF A SHOWER OR TWO AT THE CREST LEVEL THIS AFTERNOON IN MONO COUNTY. OTHERWISE, TODAY A RIDGE CENTERED TO OUR SOUTHEAST AND ONE OUT IN THE EASTERN PACIFIC WILL JOIN FORCES TO CREATE AN ELONGATED UPPER RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE. THIS WILL SET UP WARMING TEMPERATURES AND MAINLY CLEAR SKIES FOR OUR FORECAST AREA INTO THE WEEKEND AND THROUGH THE MID PART OF NEXT WEEK . ONE SIDE NOTE HERE, WITH THAT RIDGE OVER ARIZONA/NEW MEXICO, THERE IS ALWAYS THE POSSIBILITY OF A SOME MOISTURE BEING PUMPED UP INTO OUR AREA DURING THIS EXTENDED PERIOD.

FOR THE OWENS VALLEY:

TODAY: PLENTIFUL SUNSHINE. HIGHS IN THE MID 90S. WINDS LIGHT.
TONIGHT: MAINLY CLEAR. LOWS IN THE MID 50S. WINDS LIGHT.
SATURDAY: LOTS OF SUNSHINE. HIGHS IN THE UPPER 90S. WINDS LIGHT AND VARIABLE.
SATURDAY NIGHT: CLEAR. LOWS IN THE UPPER 60S. WINDS LIGHT AND VARIABLE.

FOR THE MAMMOTH LAKES AREA:

TODAY: MOSTLY SUNNY WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF AN PM T-STORM. HIGHS IN THE MID 70S. WINDS NW 5 MPH.
TONIGHT: MOSTLY CLEAR. LOWS IN THE MID 40S. WINDS NW 5 - 10 MPH.
SATURDAY: LOADS OF SUN. HIGHS IN THE UPPER 70S. WINDS E 5 MPH.
SATURDAY NIGHT: MOSTLY CLEAR. LOWS IN THE UPPER 40S. WINDS W 5 MPH.

FOR MONO COUNTY:

TODAY: SUNNY IN THE AM WITH PM T-STORMS POSSIBLE. HIGHS 75 - 85. WINDS LIGHT.
TONIGHT: MOSTLY CLEAR. LOWS 39 - 49. WINDS N 10 MPH.
SATURDAY: SUNNY BLUE SKIES. HIGHS 79 - 89. WINDS LIGHT AND VARIABLE.
SATURDAY NIGHT: CLEAR. LOWS 43 - 53. WINDS NE 10 MPH.

THIS IS DENNIS MATTINSON AND YOU NEEDN'T TAKE MY ADVICE, BUT I HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT "GO DO IT" WEEKEND.

NOTE: DENNIS' FORECAST ORIGINATES FROM THE FORT INDEPENDENCE EPA METEOROLOGICAL AND PM-10 MONITORING STATION. BECAUSE WEATHER CONDITIONS VARY GREATLY FROM LOCATION TO LOCATION IN THE EASTERN SIERRA, THIS FORECAST MAY NOT BE TOTALLY ACCURATE FOR YOUR AREA.
