WEATHER FORECAST: The Owens Valley / The Town of Mammoth Lakes
MON MAR 01 2021 4:09 AM PST
SYNOPSIS: Today is the first day of Meteorological Spring. That means we are in the cut off low season. A cut off low is a closed upper low that has been totally displaced (cut off) from the basic Westerly current and moves independently of that current. These systems are a headache to forecast for, as they seem to have a mind of their own. Having said all that, it looks dry this week, except for (you guessed it) a cut off low splits off from the main flow and eventually meanders inland mid week, about Wednesday over SOCAL. Right now impacts look minimal in our area, but I can’t rule out a few showers on Thursday in Mammoth. We will see about that so stay tuned…DMATT
