Things have pretty much dried out over our district, save for a slight chance of a few high based thunderstorms, here and there today. On Wednesday, a trough of low pressure will slowly dip into Northern California as high pressure moves eastward through the weekend. This means that any moisture will stay over the 4-Corners area for now. So, average temperatures are in store for us ( upper 70s for Mammoth and upper 90s for the Owens Valley) with some debris clouds and lighter winds. This weather scenario will likely last until about mid August.
