This will be the last post until the 10th of May. It appears that after a chilly weekend all medium range models bring in a pretty good long wave upper ridge to the golden state. An inverted surface trofsets up along the coast for offshore flow as well at times. Temps will rise into the low 60s by mid week. However…..this weekend will be a chilly one for the fisher folks with north winds on the lake 10 to 20mph. Day time mighsin the 50s and early am lows in the 20s. Here in Mammoth it will stay in the 40s until Monday when temps take the hike into the 50s then 60s by Tuesday. it will be a dry week until temps get warm enough for some afternoon convection. Then the possibility of some summer like afternoon showers later in the week over the higher terrain.
The long range is different between the EC and the gfs. One has ridging and the other trofing. So at this time you will all just have to wait to see how it all pans out! Will update May 10th….
Have a great week………….Adios!………….:-)
