Saturday AM Update:
Fair Indian Summer weather to continue through at least Tuesday….with highs in the low 60s in the Town of Mammoth. The upper ridge will hold through Tuesday and will be slower to move east because of TS Sandy which will have the effect of the slowing the progression of the long wave features across the CONUS. Thus Wednesdays snowfall potential will be pushed back to probably Thursday now.
Additionally, as the system finally moves into the west coast coast Mid Mid week…..it will be running into the mean ridge position centered over the SW. So the front will weaken rapidly as it progresses through California Wednesday into Thursday. The Dweebs do not expect much out of the front. In fact it may just bring some showers Thursday and that’s it. Antecedent conditions will be pretty warm and so snow, whatever falls will be over the very upper elevations then falling into town after the fronts through. Will take a look at the freezing level in a few days. Again this may bring any ware from some very light accumulations to nothing…..
Updates early next week……
Dr Howard and the Dweebs……………………………………:-)
Snow-making the past several nights continues to add to Mondays Snowfall so that Mammoth Mt opening will be right on time…..
In short….An Upper ridge builds in over the weekend for a beautiful Fall weekend with above normal temps…..Highs about 60 in Mammoth Sunday and mid to upper 70s for Bishop. Night time low will be mild Sunday morning and above freezing in the mid to upper 30s at 8000 ft.
The warmer then normal weather will continue through Wednesday.
Cooler Wednesday along with unsettled conditions leading to a chance of light snow for either All Hallows Eve or a slower solution brings the system in the following day Thursday the first.
Have a great weekend, but pray for the folks on the Central Atlantic coast Monday and Tuesday.
