Shortwave energy (from the PACNW) has dropped south into Mono County and this creates a chance of showers & thunderstorms there. By Friday the threat spreads down thru Inyo County and the Kern Mountains, then into SOCAL. So, a chance of showers & thunderstorms should continue thru the weekend, in our forecast area. Past that, strengthening hurricane Blanca could bring a surge of moisture up thru the tip of Baja into SOCAL. Lets wait and see on this and how it effects us.

Owens Valley:

Today: Mostly sunny becoming partly cloudy. Highs 84 / Lows 51. Winds SE 10 – 15 mph.
Friday: 20% chance of showers & thunderstorms. Highs 84 / Lows 50. Winds SE 10 – 15 mph.

Mammoth Lakes (7,800 – 8,200 feet):

Today: 40% chance of showers & thunderstorms. Highs 57 / Lows 41. Winds NE 5 – 10 mph.
