It’s 30 at the top of Mammoth Mountain and we have winds to 32 MPH out of the SW over the top of Mammoth Mountain.
This morning there was a dusting of snow in the area. Some locations had 1/4 to 2 inches of the graupel like snow on the ground.
Sure was nice to see the local mountains with a dusting of snow. It makes for some great images that you only get in September before the Fall colors come into play.
Looking at road conditions, 395 is open to all traffic with no restrictions at this time. All other roads are also open at this time with no restrictions.
The Mammoth Mountain Bike Park is now open daily thru this Sunday. Expect cold mornings in the Bike Park for closing weekend.
Once the park is closed you can still come out and ride, just watch out for construction crews getting ready for the winter season. We are going to ride Paper Route out of the Chair 4 parking lot on Tuesday AM if anybody wants to join in, going to stop and go for video and photos.
Falls Colors are starting now in all elevations to some degree, expect the peak colors to come out in higher elevations over the next few weeks. Snowman will be out on Friday getting some images of the early colors from Mammoth Lakes to Rock Creek to the Bishop areas.
Looking at the forecast, expect a warming trend into Sunday with highs in the 60s in Mammoth Lakes, 50s in the Bike Park and in the Mammoth Lakes Basin and 80s down in Bishop. Nighttime lows will come into the 40s over the weekend after lows in the 30s for most areas tonight.
Winds will be light the next few days just 10-20 MPH during the PM hours starting on Friday.
Just to note any high wind event until there is snow on the ground will cause more power outages in the Mammoth Lakes and Mono County areas.
Bishop Creek Canyon is also getting powered down during these winds events.

Have a great day hope to see you soon, Snowman.
