Towering cumulous developed mid to late morning over Mammoth Lakes as dew points increased. Thunderstorms developed later this afternoon mainly east of highway 395 with a particularly strong cell near Mono Lake at 6:00pm Thursday evening. Expect a repeat again Friday. High temps will continue in the low 80s then mid 80s Saturday.  As we go through the weekend the Continental four corners high builds westward, centered near the southern NV/Utah Border Saturday. Expect an increase in southerly flow Friday night into Saturday with some pockets of impulses kicking off a better chance of thunder storms Saturday afternoon and evening…This is true for Sunday as well.  Lows at night will be in the 50s

The outlook for the upcoming week shows an increase of westerly flow and drier air working back into Mono County Monday into Tuesday. That will put an end to the thunderstorm’s once again,. Early morning lows will move down into the upper 30s and 40s by Tuesday night.  Daytime highs will cool to the upper 70s.  By Mid Week, the upper high begins to build westward again with sensible warming into the 80s by Thursday. Monsoon moisture along with air mass modification is likely to occur again Thursday and Friday next week, for a return of thunder for Eastern CA.
