TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
Lake Gregory is now open for the Summer Season.
Today fog and low clouds have moved in across parts of the Rim and adjacent areas. The Marine layer (fog) should remain below the 4500-5000′ level today. An area of low pressure will bring showers through most of California today and as far south as Northern Santa Barbara County. Here locally, we may see a light shower as the system passes over the mountain area along with drizzle from the Rim to the coastal locations. Later today, upper level clouds from 10-25,000′ will give us mostly cloudy skies and much cooler temperatures. Yesterday’s expected cooler temps didn’t really materialize as high temps across most of the area were very close to the previous days. Today highs will be in the mid 60s for most areas with increasing upper level clouds becoming mostly cloudy by the afternoon hours. Tomorrow, we will slowly clear as the area of low pressure will slowly move East with high pressure filling in behind the departing low. Temperatures will warm back up, and by Friday, we should be in the mid to upper 70s through the weekend. RC
On the WX/Alerts and Trends page, I have posted a really good video of the Yosemite Valley rivers and falls during this winters rainy season. It’s worth watching.
