For all interested, the Snow Phone is back on line.

Thank you for your patience.

9:25AM Wednesday 9th

(Beautiful morning in the high country. Winds calm, temperature 42 degrees at 9:30AM)

An inside slider type storm will push into Northern CA tonight, beinging an increase of wind beginning this afternoon.  Highs today in Mammoth will be in the mid 40s. Winds will increase late today and tonight, with the chance of snow showers developing after midnight through mid day Thursday.  WInds in the Town of Mammoth will be the strongest Tonight with gusts to 40 mph, then post frontal winds out of the north will highlight areas along the highway 395 corridor.  Stronger North winds are expected to develop for the Owens Valley beginning around 8:00AM, continuing into the night Thursday.  WInd Advisorys are included in the Weather Service forecast all day Thursday with gusts 40 mph to 60 mph possible. It will be a dry front for the valley with snow showers in the high country. For those traveling south through the Owens Valley, it will be best for low profile vehicels as strong tail winds provide for great gas mileage on Thursday! If your headed north, well…not so good!

Thursday will be breezy and cold on Mammoth Mt with wind chill factor  below 0 on the Mountain. Highs in town will be in the upper 20s with lows in the low teens.

The gredient will relax Friday with a warmer day as ridging builds in. Low 40s are likley to return Friday with little additional warming over the weekend. Later Saturday and into Sunday may breeze up again as a system passes to our north.  Highs will continue into the 40s with nightime lows in the teens and 20s this weekend.

In the extended outlook, the Tuesday storm next week, looks to mainly give the Pacific NW south to the Northern Sierra, best odds for meaningfull snowfall. At this time, Mammoth would be in for light amounts (1 to 6 in). This of course is preliminary because of the distance in time.

The Dweebs will have a better handel on it all later this week.   BTW, there are several sytems expected expected to affect Northern CA later this Month.   Hopefully some of that gets far enough south to make a difference here.

It will be a warmer day today Tuesday in the high country. Highs will climb into the low 40s and winds will be light. Althrough little change in temperature is expected Wednesday, the winds will be up.   Another cold Great Basin Slider is expected Thursday with about 15 degreees of cooling and a skosh of snowfall. (Less than an inch) Highs on Thursday will be in the upper 20s.  The latest models return upper ridging to our area this Friday followed by a Trof to our north on Saturday Afternoon and evening. Although Saturday/Night looks dry, it may be quite breezy. Temperatures will recover quickly from Thursdays system, for Friday. It appears that the pattern acorss the Eastern Pacific will be becomming more progressive. There is a meanningful storm in the models for Tuesday, next week…..Even a weak AR with it.  Stay tuned!!!
