9-16-2019 – 6 PM – FYI all power is out in Mono County due to high winds and a red flag warning for fire.
Highway 395 is open with strong winds, however, if you have a high profile vehicle you will be held back just outside of Bishop.
Expect winds to back off after 8 PM this evening. At this point expect the power to resume on Tuesday by noon.
The power is on in Bishop at this time, out in some sections of Inyo County as well.
No rain or snow in Mammoth yet today, but it’s snowing above 8000 feet just north of Mammoth and June and is moving our way.
Red Flag Warning until tonight at 8 PM, strong winds are blowing at this time.
We have a strong low-pressure system heading into California over the next few hours, with a second system moving in later on Wednesday. Each system will bring strong winds, low humidity, and high fire danger.
There is a slight chance of snow showers tonight over Mammoth Mountain and again early Thursday. Expect a good solid frost above 7500 tonight in the Mammoth Lakes and June Lake Areas.
Get our full forecast and the extended outlook at Snowman’s Mammoth Weather page.
The Mammoth Mountain Bike Park is now open daily thru September 22nd. All trails are open and the summer crowds are gone. The park did get some rain in the last week and the dirt is in great packed down shape.
Falls Colors are starting now in the higher elevations where there are patches of Aspen. Lower down, most of the Willows are peaking a brilliant yellow in the Mammoth Meadow and along area trails and lakes.
We are even seeing some yellowing now down in the Bishop Area and up in Bishop Creek Canyon. Colors tend to peak out in early to mid-October depending on your elevation.
