WEDNESDAY June 20, 2012
Welcome to the first day of Summer (4:09 pm PDT). With this, high pressure centered over Northern Baja, flexes it biceps and brings warm temperatures to our district today and tomorrow. Daytime highs will flirt with the century mark in the Owens Valley and hit the upper 80s in parts of Mono County. Gusty winds are expected on Thursday as well. An ever deepening offshore trof then nudges that high pressure eastward Friday and into the weekend. So a slight cooling trend is expected thru Sunday. Temps should run some 4 – 7 degrees below norms over the weekend.
