FRIDAY OCT 17 2014

wx9

Quiet weather thru tonight as flat ridging transitions to a weak southerly flow. What this means is, passing high cloud cover and a few weak troughs moving across the region, with minimal weather impacts over the Weekend. By early next week, a stronger trough moves onshore with a slight chance of precipitation in Northern Mono County about Monday night. Windy again on Monday ahead of that trough. So blowing dust once again is possible, similar to the 14 /15th of last week. I will have a more pinpoint forecast on the timing of this, over the weekend.

OWENS VALLEY:

Today: Mostly sunny then partly cloudy. Highs 74 – 77 / Lows 41 – 51. Winds SE 10 mph.
