“Giving you the reasons why Eastern Sierra weather happens.”
TUESDAY August 07, 2012
One word for our weather this week is HOT. High pressure centered over New Mexico continues to retrograde into our area bringing with it well above normal temperatures. China Lake was the hot spot in our district yesterday with 107 degrees. The other concern is the possibility of convection which mostly stayed east of our area yesterday. But today and Wednesday we should see some monsoonal moisture begin to push in. Thus a slight chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms then thru the weekend. With this, fire danger is at an extreme.
For the Owens Valley:
Today: Mostly sunny becoming partly cloudy. Highs 100 / lows 65. Winds SE 10 – 15 mph.
