Well todays weather will be a far cry from last Wednesday’s, which had snow in the mountains, cool temperatures and winds gusting to 60+ mph in some places. So the Owens Valley today should see daytime highs of 80 F degrees under mostly sunny skies and light winds. Likewise Mammoth should be close to 60 F degrees. All due to an amplified ridge of high pressure off the West coast which is directing storms well to our north. This nice “Spring Like” weather will persist through the weekend and into the early part of next week. Temperatures should peak today and Thursday, then drop a little (but still above normal) over the weekend as a few systems past to our north.
