Saturday night….5-4-2019

Several forcing mechanisms will be affecting our weather this new week with the current upper low moving into Southern Ca and yet another that will develop off the coast of So Cal later this week.  It all adds up to an active week of showers and thunderstorms  for Mono County with high elevation snowfall.

Over the course of next week, (7 days);, areas of 1/2 to as much as an inch of water eq will fall in some areas. As it is convective the best chances will be over the higher terrain.  So an active week of weather with gradually cooler temps will follow. The forecast includes the chance of precipitation each day and even during some nights……….This may persist through next weekend.

Had a peak at the new models this morning for the weekend and early next week.  The models are converging on a solution that brings some pretty strong upper divergence (unstable air) over the Central Sierra, both Sunday and Monday as the next closed upper low moves inland about Malibu CA. Sunday AM. The WX system sort of stalls out over Southern CA through Monday. There  is plenty of opportunity for some slow moving meso scale storms to develop over the sierra. These may produce some locally heavy precip, mainly during the mid to late afternoon hours like in the Summer. Storm may linger into the evening as well. Thundersnow possible….
