Not so Fab weekend coming up with more upper elevation wind than earlier throught…..Northwest flow aloft with embeded impulses to plague Mammoth for the forseeable future….

Changes to earlier thinking include a much flatter upper flow into the Sierra with more moisture in the upper levels. A now NW flow pattern will allow several impulses that will bring periods of wind as will as light precipitation. Some upper elevation snow and lower elevation rain is expected about every other day. Winds will be more on than off…..Temps will be mild with highs in the 40s and 50s and lows in the 20s and lower 30s. Winds will range in the 15 to 30 MPH range in town with winds in the upper elevations 40 to 60+ MPH at times.
Remember it’s April and there will be many more “Fools Days” ahead weatherwise then just the first! 😉
