Friday 5-13-22 @ 1:40 PM – Looks like a perfect weekend to get outside and take part in your favorite Spring activity. Skies will be clear and daytime highs will be a bit above average for this time of year.
Mammoth Mountain and the High Country @ 9000 Feet: Highs will be in the mid to upper 50s on Saturday before there is a bit of a cool down on Sunday.
The Main Lodge area at 8900 feet could even see the low 60s. Winds at the 9000-foot level are expected to be around 5-15 MPH at times. Over the Top of Mammoth and along Sierra ridge winds will be light into early next week.
Mammoth Lakes @ 8000 Feet: Expect a high of around 70 on Saturday and then daytime highs will settle into the mid to upper 60s into early next week. Lows will be in the upper 30s to low 40s. Winds will be light at 5-10 MPH at times.
Crowley to Toms Place: Highs will be in the mid-70s on Saturday and then 70s lows into early next week.
Night times lows will be in the low to mid-40s. Winds are expected to be 5-10 MPH so a nonfactor if you’re heading out on Crowley Lake.
Mill Pond to Bishop: Highs will be warm with the upper 80s to low 90s during the afternoon hours. Mornings will be perfect in the 70s after nighttime lows in the low to mid-50s.

Weather Summary: 5-13-22 @ 1 PM – Below is the EPS gif that goes out over the next 16 days.
A ridge of High Pressure is building over the area at this time and will peak on Saturday. Higher heights remain in the area and intensify a bit by mid-week.
By the following Friday and Saturday, the next inside slider moves by with some much cooler temperatures with a few snow showers possible.
That system will start to kick up winds in the area starting next Thursday. Most high country locations will be back to freezing at night for several days.
Day 10 into day 16 looks to offer up more above normal highs with a big old ridge possible for the Memorial Day weekend.
If that ridge does pan out there would be the mid to upper 90s in Bishop for Mules Day with Mammoth Lakes in the mid-70s or warmer.
Enjoy what’s left of Spring as the warmer days of Summer are moving in soon.
