June 1st 11:00AM

Just an update on the pattern this week.   Near or record high temperatures are expected for Mono County today through Friday. This means in this pattern, that highs will average 79 to 81 degrees which are more seasonal for mid to late July, the warmest time of the year here in the high county. Summerlike high based thunderstorms are expected to begin as early as Wednesaday afternoon with Thursday late afternoon the most likley time for a Thundershower. This Summer tease will end Sunday with windy weather and a cooling trend that will carry into the following week. A long wave trof will desend upon California, beinging wind, cooling with the possibly of showers and or Thunderstorms. Below normal temps lare possible in this pattern next week. Freezing early morning lows are possible as well. As a note, both 6 to 10 and 8 to 14 day outlooks are cooler than normal.

Longer Range;

The aformentioned trof is expected to lift out during mid month.  Much warmer weather may return during the 3rd week of June.


For Memorial Day Weekend, you could not ask for a better weather pattern. In the beginning, a flat ridge builds over the area. That same ridge really amplifyes later in the weekend for some super warm temps.  The upper ridge is expected to hold over California through mid week next week, then weaken toward that following weekend.  Highs in Mammoth will climb to the mid 70s by Sunday with lows mostly in the 40s by then. Daytime high are expected to break 80 by Tuesday. The pattern is not with out some prospects for rain.  The region will be under some unstable air Saturday afternoon that may bring some summer like showers or even some Thunder.  Our ridge peaks out Tuesday into Wednesday next week. By Thursday, some height falls will allow for some breezy weather and some high clouds. Highs will still remain in the 70s, and may to hold into that following weekend.

Both the ECMWF and GFS has strong height falls the end of next week into week 3. This is the 2nd week of June and is more of an interseasonal outlook, (risky at best!)  It shows a couple of chilly trofs headed our way, early during the 2nd week of June.  Chilly, breezy weather with possibly some showers? Snowshowers?  🙂

The even longer range weeks 3 and 4 as pure speculation,  has height rises with the Summertime signeture of the continential high developing over the four corner states for Summers best and hottest WX.  The CPC is expecting a better monsoon Summer!  We’ll Take it!!
