“Giving you the reasons why Eastern Sierra weather happens.”
THURSDAY June 14, 2012
A chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms today and tomorrow as the cool air from an exiting system, thru the PACNW, mixes with our warm valley air. However the best chance will be on Friday as the ridge winds shift to the SE. Then starting on Saturday, a strengthening ridge of high pressure will nose its way over NORCAL and the PACNW. This will bring slight warming over the weekend.
