10-15-2019 – 8:40 AM – Good morning! We have hazy skies in the Eastern Sierra this Tuesday morning.
You will find a bit of frost down in Mammoth Lakes with chilly temperatures all the way to Bishop.
Current Conditions on Mammoth Mountain: At the top of the hill, it’s 41 degrees with light winds 5-10 MPH out of the South.
Down at Main Lodge, we have 38 degrees with calm winds at this time.
All roads are open in the area at this time with no restrictions, now is the time prepare for snow-covered roads with a winter travel kit.
Weather Forecast and Summary for Mammoth Mountain, expect clear skies today as high pressure is over the area.
On Wednesday we will start to pick up some SW winds 25-35 MPH from another dry cold front that comes through the Eastern Sierra. Windy conditions should prevail into late Thursday and then back off Friday into the weekend.
The cool air from this system will be with us on Thursday right into the weekend. Look for highs at the Mammoth Mountain Main Lodge into the 50s today and then in the 40s into Sunday. Lows will be in the upper twenties to low thirties throughout the weekend.
Next week we do expect a ridge of high pressure to move into California and it’s expected to hang around until the end of the month. That will bring highs back into the 50s and possibly low 60s at Main Lodge with nighttime lows in the 30s.
Weather Guy and I are watching every model run right now looking for any changes that might start to show up. For more details on Mammoth Mountain Weather, check out our weather page.
The count down is on, Mammoth Mountains Opening Day is set for November 9th, 2019 @ 8:30 AM. Of course, this is weather permitting, last season they had to move the opening day up 2 days.
Just about every year it looks hopeless on the webcams that they could open by the set date and then some cold air and some times some snow will move in and they pull it off. Keep the faith that it will happen just like it does every season.
Snowmaking News, crews have been working hard to upgrade some of the snowmaking lines. They look to wrap up that process this week and then it’s time to set up the guns and pray for some cold air for the Snowmaking Team to start blowing snow on Broadway.
Conditions for snowmaking next week are looking a bit warm so do not expect to see a lot of man-made snow on the webcams until late in the month or possibly early November.
If you want to learn more about the Mammoth Mountain Snowmaking System here is a link to that information.
My team and I will keep you update daily now right into and through the new winter season coming up.
