High temperatures remained well into the 80s in Mammoth as upper heights at 500MB remained well north of 594DM.  It appears that heights will continue very high as the Subtropical Continental high remains pretty much parked over the far west through the end of this month. This raises the question of whether there will be records for consecutive days above 80 in Mammoth and 100s in bishop.  There were more thunderstorms throughout Mono County today. However, that should diminish with time. The upper ridge will be come more east-west orientated next week with more westerly flow into the Eastern Sierra during the 2nd half of next week. This is a dry pattern with stronger zephyr winds into the Bluzza weekend….  Expect highs in mammoth through the end of the month into the mid 80s with nights in the low to mid 50s. Some cooling is expected in early August…..

Week 2 and 3:

Something to watch out for….

Sometime during the period between week 2 and 3; “the week after the Bluzza fest”….there is going to be a pattern change to one of at least weak troughing over the Eastern Pacific to possible anomalous troughing for early to mid August.. Its effects could mean anything from just some cooling and breezy to possibly windy weather, to the possibility of hurricane moisture coming up from a dying hurricane off Baja, Mex.

The Dweebs will give you periodic updates on this pattern change next week as it develops and explain what may happen….
