MONDAY August 06, 2012
Two things weather wise this week. That strong mid west ridge builds westward, bringing above normal temperatures to our entire district. Along with this, that ridge will drag some moisture with it, bringing a slight chance of thunderstorms to the mountains of the Owens Valley and Mono County. This thunderstorm threat will last off/on through this weekend, particularly in Mono County.
