Dry upper Trof is now lifting NE away from the Eastern Sierra…..Not before leaving a fall like chill in the air and some frost. High temperatures Sunday were in the low 60s and this morning low was between 32 and 33 degrees near the Village. The official low at the Ranger Station was probably below freezing as the Crestview Station and Bridgeport was in the low to mid 20s. This is certainly the coolest temperatures so far this late summer. Winds will be lighter the next few day with a warm up to more season levels (low to mid 70s is expected by Wednesday. Upper 70s looks possible again by Thursday and Friday as another beautiful weekend is in store….The Owens Valley near Bishop will have temps climb into the upper 90s by Thursday.
Other then the warm up for the high country, the only other weather feature worth mentioning is TS Newton moving NNW up the Sea of Cortez this week. A week ago it looks like there was the chance it might bring substantial rain to Southern California. Today, its remains will mainly affect Southern AZ and New Mexico and parts of the desert southwest… However, there maybe some chance of thunderstorm action over SE Ca and extreme southern NV, the middle of this week.
CVSv2 shows a trof of low pressure effecting the Eastern Sierra between the 15th of September and the 21st for the Chance of TS/RWs. Otherwise temps will remain above normal through months end. The next big change to cooler showery weather according to the Climate Forecast Model is during the first week of October through the 15th.
