WEATHER DISCUSSION:
 
A warming trend continues across the forecast area, as an EPAC ridge of high pressure continues to build. This time of year high temps should range about 75 – 80 degrees in the Owens Valley. The next few days will see temperatures approaching 88 degrees, so about 5 – 7 degrees above normal. Into the weekend those temps will begin to moderate, as low pressure move towards the CA coastline, then inland.  By Sunday / Monday, light precipitation is possible in our forecast area, particularly over the mountains. With all of this, cooler air will filter in, lowering temps to 76 degrees in the Owens Valley by Monday…DMATT
