Try Before You Buy at Footloose Sports in Mammoth Lakes, California9-17-2019 – 3 PM – Clear skies over Mammoth Lakes and the Eastern Sierra today with light winds.

The power that was off in Mono County has been restored in 98% of the county.

High winds from Monday are gone and 395 is open to all traffic with no restrictions at this time. Expect winds to return on Wednesday with gusts in the 30-40 MPH range, well below the winds with the last system.

No word on if they plan to power down again, if that happens the power will be on in Bishop.

Mondays storm had just a little precipitation, as the frontal band with the snow and rain fell apart just north of us. Tahoe and areas just south of that region did pick up 1-2 inches of snow.

Looking at the forecast we have a moderate low-pressure system heading into California late Wednesday into Thursday. 

There is a 20% chance we could see some snow showers above 8000 feet Thursday along with cloudy and windy skies. Highs will be in the 60s for Mammoth Lakes on Wednesday and in the 50s on Thursday with lows in the 30s.

Up on Mammoth Mountain we are hoping for that first dusting Thursday, highs will be in the 50s with lows down into the low 30s.  If you’re coming up for a Fall Weekend highs will be in the 60s to low 70s with lows in the 30s at night for Mammoth Lakes with light winds.

Expect cold mornings in the Bike Park for closing weekend. Get our full weather forecast and the extended outlook at Snowman’s Mammoth Weather page.

The Mammoth Mountain Bike Park is now open daily thru this Sunday. It’s been a great Summer in the park even with the slow start due to snow.

Once the park is closed you can still come out and ride, just watch out for construction crews getting ready for the winter season.

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.
