After the Big Chill the past few days, Mammoth was climbing out of cold temperatures and warming up quickly. The Dweebs expect temperatures in the upper 60s this weekend!

Today, the  high temperature in Bishop Wednesday was 73 degrees and in Mammoth, 57 degrees. Lows this morning were 32 degrees and 24 degrees respectfully…

The Autumn Foliage season  is getting a late start in Mammoth with the yellow and red slower to develop this year. However, higher elevations are going off nicely.


Weather Discussion:

A Trough of low pressure will move through the area Thursday, creating gusty winds, but little change in temperatures.   Lows at night will come up to the low 30 degrees from the 20s of late.

This Trof may bring a short period of critical fire weather on Thursday.  Looking toward the weekend, ridging is the word. This upper ridge of high pressure will build through early next week.  The ridge flattens Tuesday into Wednesday with more afternoon breeze and somewhat cooler temperatures. (October 9th)

Another belt of westerlies pushes into the pacific NW the following weekend. This is more of a zonal flow with Mammoth remaining well south of the jet. Lots of high clouds possible but nice weather and seasonal temperatures. (Low 60s)

It will be the following week as we get into the middle of the month that a more significant Trof affects our area. This is around the 15th of the month of October, give or take a few days.
