Recreational Weather for Mammoth Mountain & the Eastern Sierra
6-2-22 @ 8:47 AM – Good morning from the Eastern Sierra, look for a 20% chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms today in the higher elevations. There could even be some snow pellets above the 9500-foot level during the afternoon hours.
By tonight winds will be picking up again at the higher elevations as the next low-pressure system moves towards the area.
That system will bring cooler highs with breezy conditions into Sunday. Temperatures will be 5-7 days degrees below average over the weekend.
Wind speeds Friday into Saturday for Mammoth Lakes will be in the 10-15 MPH range with gusts to 25 MPH possible. Over the higher elevations, gusts will be in the 30-40+ MPH range.
On Sunday there is also a 20% chance of a few scattered T Storms over the higher elevations.
For next week the cooler weather heads out with average to a bit above average temperatures by mid to late next week. Winds will be light with moderate gusts possible during the afternoon hours.
Looks like a great 5-10 days for recreation here in the Eastern Sierra, not too hot and not too cold, just about right.
Please note: there is a high fire danger in the area after the dry winter. During times of moderate winds kill your campfires and don’t drive off the dirt if you’re out adventuring or 4 wheeling. Expect full fire restrictions to go into effect any day now. Just waiting for word from the Forest Service.
