Yes…..Its going to be toasty this weekend!  Highs in the Mid to Upper 70s Saturday and Sunday in Mammoth and Mid 90s in the High Deserts. The ECMWF tells the screaming message that the last chilly system has moved though and although the GFS has some cooling for the following week after the 9th, the cooling will only be associated with temps back down into the 60s….not 50s.  

Isolated to Widely Scattered High based thunderstorms will likely occur over the Southern Central Sierra and Southern Sierra Mid week next week. The upper off shore cut off gets the boot SE by the following weekend, when temps may cool down a bit in the high country due to a trof passing well to the north. However, between now and then it’s early Summer Weather here in the High Sierra!  Highs climbing well into 70s and lows in the 40s at resort levels.

Climate Teleconnections show the Eastern Pacific Oscillation in the negative phase. That is usually associated with above normal heights over the southern half of the Far west.  Coastal sections north of Pt. conception will be battling the extra Cold Pacific Waters of the -PDO and a stronger marine layer once the onshore flow really gets going.  Inland areas will be extra hot this weekend with 100s in the Central Valley.

Thus, Tis the time to be a high country dweller……………..:-)
