FORECAST: The Owens Valley, Mammoth and Mono County

“Giving you the reasons why Eastern Sierra weather happens.”
THURSDAY May 31, 2012
Well the last day of May 2012 sees high pressure continuing to build in over the state through Friday. This will result in mostly clear skies and climbing temperatures. I expect some cumulus build up over the Crest each afternoon. A weak shortwave will ride the ridge on Friday bringing the chance of t-storms Friday afternoon. The ridge will begin to slide eastward over the weekend as an area of low pressure forms off the coast. This will allow temps to start edging back down Saturday and Sunday.

Friday: Sunny. Highs 95 and lows 60. Winds SE 5 – 8 mph.
