FRI MAR 15 2013
Our ridge of high pressure is drifting slowly eastward, but still quite warm today, with temps remaining above normal for mid March. Some cooling Saturday and Sunday as a few systems pass to our north. Weak ridge re-builds on Monday then flattens as a trough from the Gulf of Alaska drops south and reaches Northern California by Tuesday of next week. So temps will take a tumble back to normal and theres a chance of snow in Mono County through Thursday. The Owens Valley looks to have a slight chance of rain Wednesday. Not a big system but we will take what we can get. Ridging rebuilds thereafter for dry weather.
