Quick Monday Morning Update:
Yes…….An adjustment wave is forecasted to form this week and today’s energy is headed through the pacific NW and clash with the desert heat. Breezy weather occurred all night last night and in fact the breezes were felt down into the Long Valley area where Mammoth AP had wind all night. As the desert heat develops today….gradient winds will add to the pict in making this quite the breezy day in Mammoth and down right windy over the crest and along the lee. Winds could gust as high as 80mph over the crest today with gusts in Mammoth in the 25 to 40mph range. Winds will abate tomorrow as some ridging rebuilds into the state for the first few days of summer. Then an even stronger trof cools things down and brings even more winds Friday in the weekend.
Day time highs will fluxuate between the low 70s and low 80s this week. Lows in the upper 30s by weeks end and 50s.
