The upper high over 4-Corners makes its return today, warming up temperatures to several degrees above seasonal norms, through mid week. As it moves westward, it will most likely draw up some moisture from Tropical Depression Greg. This moisture will bring some buildups over the mountains and a slight chance of thunderstorms in Inyo and Mono County on Tuesday and Wednesday. Persistent above normal temps through the end of the week, as that high anchors itself over the district.
