“Giving you the reasons why Eastern Sierra weather happens.”
SATURDAY August 18, 2012
Thunderstorm chances continue today as there remains plenty of moisture in the atmosphere. Precipitable water looks to more than an inch on Saturday. By Sunday those chances diminish a bit as the upper flow turns more SWLY across our district. This will push most (but not all) of the moisture our of the area. However we can still expect isolated thunderstorms over the mountains. By Monday an on-shore flow develops and we will see a reduction on temperateness by a few degrees thru most of next week with dry weather through at least Wednesday.
