“Giving you the reasons why Eastern Sierra weather happens.”
FRIDAY June 22, 2012
After a period of warm weather where we flirted with 100 degrees in the Owens Valley and the upper 80s in parts of Mono County, a cool troughy pattern sets up off the West Coast. This will drop temperatures today, some 15 degrees from yesterdays highs. This pattern, caused by an elongated upper low from the Gulf of Alaska, will remain mostly stationary thru mid next week. So we will have cooler than normal temps through Thursday of next week. Enjoy it while you can as high pressure begins to build in later in the week and proceeds to push the trough eastward. This will bring us back to warmer, more seasonal temps by next Friday and into the weekend.
