Weather Forecast 09.13.06

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.

Owens Valley & High Sierra Forecast
Fort Independence EPA Met Station
EPA Site No: 06-027-1028
1026 PDT 13 Sep 2006

All:

Short Term…It is sill looking like a big cool down for the Owens Valley and High Country starting on Thursday, as a Pacific trough drops down from Canada. For today however, temps will be in the normal range with light winds and mostly clear to partly cloudy skies. The High Country (8,000 ft.) will see daytime temps in the low 70s and evening temps in the mid 30s. The Owens Valley will have afternoon temps in the low 90s and evening temps in the low to mid 50s.

Long Term…On Thursday afternoon, the initial cold front will move through our area, producing strong winds and unseasonably cool temps. We can expect temps to drop and winds to pick in the High Country. On Friday another front will drive through the Eastern Sierra, producing continued cool temps, with some areas seeing a 20+ degrees drop in temperature. There will be winds in the 60+ mph range over the Crest and in the high passes. Friday, the High Country can expect daytime temps in the low 50s and nighttime temps in the upper 20s. The Owens Valley will have afternoon temps in the mid 70s and evening temps in the upper 40s. Right now, these systems look fairly dry and I don’t expect much precipt in the Owens Valley, but a light dusting over the Crest is possible on Friday. On Saturday, the trough will begin to depart and leave us with continued cool temps and breezy conditions. By Sunday and Monday, we will experience a warm up, with temps recovering to near normal.
