DISCUSSION
 
 
MUCH QUIETER WEATHER PATTERN RETURNS TO THE REGION TODAY AND  
THROUGH MOST OF NEXT WEEK AS MOISTURE AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES  
PUSH EASTWARD. THERE REMAINS A SLIGHT CHANCE (<10%) OF A  
THUNDERSTORM TODAY IN SOUTHERN MONO COUNTY WITH LOWER CHANCES INTO  
THE WEEKEND.  
 
DRY SOUTHWEST FLOW RETURNS AS LARGE SCALE HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS  
OVER THE WESTERN U.S. THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. THIS WILL  
CONTINUE TO ALLOW DAYTIME HIGH TEMPERATURES TO RISE 3-8 DEGREES  
ABOVE AVERAGE THROUGH THE END OF NEXT WEEK. HOWEVER, WITH SHORTER  
DAYS ALREADY SETTING IN, OVERNIGHT TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO  
COOL INTO THE LOW TO MID 60S IN THE VALLEYS. HARD TO BELIEVE WE  
ARE LESS THAN 2 WEEKS UNTIL METEOROLOGICAL FALL!  
 
TYPICAL AFTERNOON ZEPHYR WINDS OVER THE WEEKEND AND INTO NEXT WEEK  
WITH A FEW HOURS OF 20-25 MPH GUSTS EACH AFTERNOON ALONG THE  
EASTERN SIERRA INTO FAR WESTERN NV. THUNDERSTORMS MAY RETURN TO  
THE REGION AROUND THE END OF NEXT WEEK AS MOISTURE ATTEMPTS TO  
MOVE BACK IN FROM THE SOUTH. HOWEVER, MOST OF THE GUIDANCE KEEPS  
THE BULK OF THE MOISTURE TO OUR EAST WITH ONLY A FEW STORMS  
RETURNING TO MONO/MINERAL COUNTIES. -ZACH
