Mammoth Mountain & Eastern Sierra Weather Forecast
There have been some nice rain showers mixed in with the thunderstorms we have had the last couple of days.
Rainfall amounts were in the .25 to .50 of an inch range in the Mammoth Lakes area. Bishop picked up some rain at times the last couple of days but amounts were still just a trace.
For today there is a 50% chance of thunderstorms today in the high country, with a 30% chance for the lower elevations.
Chances of thunderstorms continue into Friday and the Independence Holiday weekend. However, there will not be as much action as we have had this week with chances this weekend at just 20%.
Expect more isolated storms with build-ups mainly over the higher terrain above 8000 feet. If you’re going to be heading out for a long hike the next few days I would still advise you to go early to avoid any thunderstorm action.
Daytime highs have come down this week and they look to remain in the mid to upper 70s at the 8000-foot level with mid to upper 90s in Bishop through July 4th and into early next week.
Nighttime lows have come down a bit with the mid-50s for the higher elevations will lows to mid-60s in the lower elevations.
Air quality remains good after a few hours of smoke on Wednesday from the #bluefire.
Beyond this weekend temperatures will be coming up as a new high-pressure system will be building into the area. That will be heatwave number 3 for the region in the last few weeks. Snowman
