Large scale upper low still affecting the district today. I expect isolated shower and thunderstorm activity to continue today in the Owens Valley and end of week for Mono County. A nocturnal storm, here and there, still possible over the mountains. By Thursday, that low begins to kicks east. However, another low looks to form over the region Friday and into the weekend with dry conditions, cooler temperatures and increased winds. Right now, limited convection over the mountains at best. More on this as the week progresses.
