FORECAST: Owens Valley, Mammoth and Mono County 
FROM: Dennis Mattinson, Weather and Atmospheric Forecaster / SierraWave Media: Eastern Sierra News

MONDAY Nov 04 2013

Shortwave is moving through the district today, bringing some clouds and wind along with cooler temperatures through Tuesday. Weak high pressure then builds in along the West Coast Wednesday andThursday for a slight warm up. Its a dirty ridge so there will be abundant cloud cover over the area. Longer term forecast for the second week on November, shows the possibility of long wave trough setting up off the West Coast. With this, several systems could move across the area with enough moisture to bring some precipitation. This is a ways out yet, so we will see.
