FORECAST 25-AUG-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 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, 25-AUG-09, MORNING REPORT

AN UPPER RIDGE WILL BUILD IN OVER OUR FORECAST AREA AND MOST ASSUREDLY WARM THINGS UP BY MID TO END OF WEEK. THEN THINGS COOL DOWN A BIT OVER THE WEEKEND AS A CLOSED LOW HOVERS OFF THE COAST. THE WEEKEND WILL ALSO SEE A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE MOUNTAINS FOR MONO COUNTY AND DRY CONDITIONS FOR THE OWENS VALLEY WILL PREVAIL. WITH AN EL NINO YEAR UPON US, SOMETHING TO WATCH IN SEPTEMBER IS THE TROPICAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE EASTERN PACIFIC WHICH COULD HELP TO MOVE MOISTURE INTO THE WEST COAST OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS OR SO. WE WILL WAIT AND SEE HOW ALL THIS DEVELOPS AND KEEP YOU POSTED AS THINGS PROGRESS.
