By: Dennis Mattinson, Weather & Atmospheric Forecaster
MONDAY July 09, 2012
Hotter days are here to come, as the monster ridge thats been causing the blistering heat in the East, migrates westward and sets up camp over the Great Basin. It now looks like Tuesday and Wednesday will be the hottest, where 100+ in the Owens Valley and the mid 90s in parts of Mono County are possible. As far as thunderstorms go, Tuesday looks to have a slight chance of isolated t-storms (with dry lightening is possible), then deeper moisture flows in mid week. Temps could trim back a bit on any day due to cloud cover, but the best chance is Thursday and Friday as alto-cumulus and humidity will be on the increase.
