9-27-2016 – Good morning from Mammoth Lakes we have clear skies today.
As of 6:50 AM we have a 41 at the 8200 foot level, up at Main Lodge it’s 41 and we have a 45 up top with a NE wind to 18 MPH.
Highs today will be in the low 70’s in town with 60’s up on Mammoth Mountain and into the Lakes basin. Night time lows will be in the 40s with NE winds today 10-25 MPH over higher elevations.
As we move into the weekend expect highs to plummet into the 50s in town with 40s in the Lakes Basin and up on Mammoth Mountain. Night time lows will be into the 20s. Winds will be strong out of the SW to 60 MPH by Saturday.
Looking at the first two weeks of October things are going to be cooler then normal. Later in the month is does look good for some snow fall to start build a bit of base to help the snow making crew.
If your into Falls colors should peak over the next two weeks, at this time the best color show is up in Rock Creek Canyon.
Snowman started blogging this information back in 1990 on the old Mammoth BBS system, then the RSN Forums and then on to MammothSnowman.com in 2004 with his Video & Photo Blog reports. (No You Tube back then)
Snowman has had his reports, videos and photos featured on both local TV Stations here in Mammoth, along with Fox, ABC, CBS and NBC News. ______________________________________________________________
I started skiing at age 5, first discovered Mammoth Mountain in 1979 as a youth, and have been a regular visitor since.
Putting together the Powder Outlook has been a lot of fun over the last 7 snow seasons.
