Cold Breezy weekend….But the last! Summer arrives this Tuesday and the Summertime Thunder starts the day after!

Latest ECMWF 12z run today Fathers Day has the cold upper trof that has been bringing below normal temps to Mono County and freeze conditions at night, moving out today. Another chilly day today is in process and another freeze tonight likely, at least for a few areas. Rapid warming is expected to begin Monday into Tuesday.

Again this is Winters last gasp!!  The Strong Troughs of Springs are done for CA!!


Welcome to Summer this Tuesday!  Longest day of the year!

First discussion for Summer;

Tropical storm Blas is weakening rapidly SSW off Cabo. Meanwhile a weak Trof will split off from the westerlies and form a weak upper level low late Tuesday off the Central CA coast near Paso Robles. Moisture from the remnant’s of Bals, spins up a subtropical jet with Mammoth, under the Front left Quad Wednesday with an active day of Thunder and lighting storms over the Sierra, both Wednesday and Thursday.. Please, all prey for no fires in the Sierra!!!!!!!!!!!  If your going into the back country, be very aware of this possibility, especially over the weekend after the storms are gone and the weather really warms up and the forest dry’s out!

Main Message from this update is that Summer arrives Tuesday and that Summer weather along with it well into July and August!

Winters Last Gasps are on their way…..One this weekend and the very last Fathers Day……Thereafter….Continental high sets up for the Summer…..

9:15 AM 6/16/2022


High temperatures reached the mid 70s in Mammoth Wednesday with similar highs expected today Thursday. A trough of low pressure was centered off the Oregon Coast this morning destined to dig through California over the weekend. Expect strong gusty winds developing later today and stronger winds in the 50 to 60MPH range for the Mammoth area Friday.


The Dweebs are saying good by to the last of the migrating Trofs from the Gulf of AK over the next 10 days.  One this weekend that will bring gusty winds and about 15 degrees of cooling by Monday. Then the last one that moves through about fathers Day. That one may bring the last frost to the high county, climatically right on time!  Thereafter, the continental high sets up and all weather eyes will then be on SE flow, thunderstorms and hot temps for the Great Basin and Sierra!


Say good by to Winters Last Gasp as Summer is right on schedule!!
