Record Temperatures expected the next 3 days over Eastern CA with some relief next week…..Bishop CA has recorded three days in a row of 107. Today, the temperature may hit a whopping 109 at the airport! Then 109 again tomarrow.


Updated Tuesday AM:

The big story will continue to be the heat for both Mono and Inyo county’s through mid-week, as high pressure strengthens again over CA and Nevada into Thursday. This will likely be the hottest period of the Summer. Afternoon Zephyr Winds will be short-lived each day. With antecedent warmth already built-in, it won’t take much to push highs into the high 80s in Mammoth by Tuesday or Wednesday. The heat continues through Thursday with the chance of a few records being broken. Bishop has experienced two record breakers lately. Last Saturday’s high of 106 broke the old record of 105 set in 1980. Sundays high was 107, breaking another record of 106 set in 2010. Although no high temperature record Monday, as the old record was 108 set back in 1975, the 107 high temperature on Monday was still very hot! The Dweebs see the possibility of highs to 108 and possibly 109,  setting more high temperature records in Bishop through Thursday.

This high pressure system will begin to weaken and shift east going into the weekend. With some cooling aloft expected, the air mass will become unstable for the slight chance of thunderstorms beginning about Thursday or Friday with a better chance Saturday.

This week will be the hottest week of the Summer!!


Longer Range:

If we believe both the European and GFS ensembles, this evening, a trof from the GOA will push through the pacific NE Sunday bringing cooling and stronger westerly breezes. This will flush any moisture that develops later this week out of our area Sunday or Monday. High temps will pull back in Mammoth, returning to the upper 70s again.  Although 500MB heights rebuild through the middle of that following week for warmer temps, the possibility of another but stronger trof moves in that following weekend with stronger zephyr breezes. This is the Blues Fest Weekend. So the likelihood of any rain that weekend at this time is very remote. Temps are more apt to be in the mid 70s. (Very Nice)

(RECAP): The 1st week of Aug looks dry with the absence of thunderstorms as southwest flow keeps moisture and dynamics to our east,  So…this up coming weekend, IE the period Thursday through Saturday or Sunday is the best chance of some rain.  At the moment, it does not look like a wide-spread event……..Just a quick shot of dynamics and thunderstorms.
