Attn Fellow Dweebs…..Yes….it finally happened! Mammothweather.com in its increasing popularity got hacked! And although I am sure that the hacker got off, the site is safe again. “Again, Mammothweather.com” is safe for your use. I personally would like to thank Spencer Myers of Mammoth for his prompt attention. His long hours last night for his work in removing the malicious code.
Now on to the weather!
We are expecting a change in the pattern over the next week. It very well may be that warmer summer weather that has been absent for most of the summer will return by this weekend and continue for quite a while. The upper High over the mid and far west retrogrades a bit. As upper heights expand into California, it will really warm up. Highs in Mammoth will possibly get into the low 80s this weekend.
Tuesday’s weather maps up at 300MB showed a much weaker upper jet over Northern Ca. The progs forecast further weakening as the remaining upper jet lifts to the north over the next 2 days. This means that the Mono Zephyr really calms down. Less wind in the afternoon and evening hours.
Expect warmer temps that result in highs in Mammoth in the low 80s by Thursday. By Saturday into Sunday another very weak disturbance moves towards the pacific northwest. It then gets cut off late Saturday into Sunday, from the weak branch of westerlies off the NW coast. Although the upper low is weak, if it does cut off, there could be important implication for California by weeks end or early next week. The idea is to create channeled flow from either the SSW or S. If it’s from the south, that may advect moisture and dynamics from the south, between the upper cut off and the upper ridge over SE California. The central and especially the northern sierra are in a more favorable location with upper divergence created by the jet later next week. A usual….Time well tell as it aways does!
As at this time…..the only thing that is certain is that warmer then normal temps are in the offering……more later!
