Upper Low from the weekend was over Idaho this morning tracking east. Increasing heights with high pressure building into the north will bring very warm temps to the high country through early next week. Last “Climo” freeze at resort levels for Mono County is now behind us.


Modified for Mono County AFD From KRNO:

High pressure strengthens over Northeast California and western Nevada through Wednesday, bringing 5 to 10 degrees of warming each day with highs reaching the 80s at resort levels and 90s (western NV valleys) by Wednesday…..100s for the Owens Valley.  A weak wave moving by to the north Wednesday night will induce an increase in winds (gusts 25-30 mph, locally to 35 mph, Wednesday afternoon and evening. This will bring heightened safety concerns for boaters on area lakes.  Fire concerns will also rise somewhat in Basin Areas with dried out grasses.

Thursday, the warming trend will be halted as the weak wave moves by to the north, although highs will still top out a toasty 7-10 degrees above average. Breezy conditions are expected once again in the afternoon as the Mono Zephyr kicks in, although speeds will not be anything unusual.

LONG TERM…Friday into early next week…The overall pattern will focus on the evolution of the subtropical ridge and any short waves passing by to the north. The ridge retrogrades off the coast briefly over the weekend as a short wave drops down the Front Range of the Rockies. Then builds back with Little temperature change expected and pattern to continue dry.
