Weak ridging continues to hold on today, but a little moisture will still stream underneath it, giving Mono County a slight chance of showers. For the weekend, a slug like cut-off low will slowly drag itself from the coast, inland on Saturday. So chances of precipitation will gradually increase, with Sunday having the greatest possibility. Even the Owens Valley has a decent shot at some moisture then. Precipitation will be convection driven so much of it will be variable. Snow levels looks to hover around 8,500 feet in Mono County, dropping a bit on Sunday. Lingering showers on Monday as the system trodes on east.
