Latest update shows an upper off-shore trough will keep our air-mass dry through at least Saturday.   The Southwest flow brings both stability to our atmosphere as well as a drier air-mass. Some cooling will occur by midweek with high temps settling back to the mid 70s from a high of 79 on Sunday. Lows at night that have been in the 50s will cool down to the 40s in the more wind protected areas. The Mono County Zephyr will be enhanced each afternoon and evening hours so that areas of Town like the Mammoth Meadow area will have gusts to at least 30 mph. Other areas of town will have west winds in the 10 to 20 mph range. The SW Monsoon and its air-mass modifying effects has shifted well east of California, not allowing any related precipitation at least through Saturday. This is true for both the Southern and Central Sierra. Some of the global models this morning try to build back westward, the continental high, strong enough to bring a warm up,  along with moisture, and the air-mass modification. Thus will introduce  the slight chance of showers and thunderstorms by early next week.  At the moment, it is only a slight chance, until there is more agreement with in the global models for that following week.
