FORECAST 09-SEP-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 09-SEP-09

Postby dmatt » Wed Sep 09, 2009 7:27 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

WEDNESDAY, 09-SEP-09, MORNING REPORT

HIGH PRESSURE CONTINUES TO PUMP UP OVER THE WESTERN US AND WITH THAT WE WILL GET A SLIGHT WARMING TREND THROUGH FRIDAY. THEN OVER THE WEEKEND A WEAK UPPER LOW WILL MOVE THROUGH NORTHERN CALIFORNIA, GIVING SLIGHT COOLING AND THE CHANCE OF A THUNDERSTORM WITH A SHOWER OR TWO IN THE HIGHER TERRAIN. BY EARLY NEXT WEEK A STRONGER LOW WILL KICK INTO THE PACNW AND DROP OUR TEMPERATURES TO SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL. RIGHT NOW THERE DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE MUCH MOISTURE WITH THIS SYSTEM, SO WE WILL WAIT AND SEE HOW THINGS DEVELOP.

FOR THE OWENS VALLEY:

TODAY: SUNNY SKIES. HIGHS AROUND 91. WINDS SE 10 - 15 MPH.
TONIGHT: MOSTLY CLEAR. LOWS IN THE LOW 50S. WINDS SE 10 - 15 MPH.
THURSDAY: MAINLY SUNNY. HIGHS NEAR 93. WINDS SE 5 - 8 MPH.
THURSDAY NIGHT: MOSTLY CLEAR. LOWS IN THE MID 50S. WINDS SE 8 MPH.

FOR THE MAMMOTH LAKES AREA:

TODAY: SUNNY BLUE SKIES. HIGHS IN THE LOW 70S. WINDS S 5 - 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: GENERALLY CLEAR. LOWS IN THE MID 40S. WINDS S 5 MPH.
THURSDAY: MOSTLY SUNNY. HIGHS IN THE MID 70S. WINDS SE 10 MPH.
THURSDAY NIGHT: MOSTLY CLEAR. LOWS IN THE MID 40S. WINDS W 5 MPH.

FOR MONO COUNTY:

TODAY: SUNNY WITH A FEW CLOUDS FROM TIME TO TIME. HIGHS 74 - 84. WINDS SE 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: CLEAR. LOWS 36 - 46. WINDS SW 10 MPH.
THURSDAY: MOSTLY SUNNY. HIGHS 76 - 86. WINDS E 10 MPH.
THURSDAY NIGHT: CLEAR. LOWS 37 - 47. WINDS SW 5 MPH.

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.
