Since Saturday we have been dealing with off and on smoke in the Mammoth Lakes area. We start out clear in the mornings and then the smoke moves in after lunch.
Today we do have a low level east breeze so there is a good chance we will not see much if any smoke today.
If your coming to Mammoth the next few days be prepared to deal with light to moderate smoke at times. We will keep you updated daily with conditions in town and in the back country.
As of the 8AM hour we have a 56 here at 8175 feet. Up at the Main Lodge it’s 51 and at the top of Mammoth Mountain it is 43. Winds in town are at zero, over the higher elevations winds are out of the WSW 15-30 MPH at this time.
Highs today will be in the 70s with lows in the 40s. Up in the Mammoth Lakes Basin and at the Mammoth Mountain Ski area highs will be in the 60s with lows in the 30s/40s. For a full weather report check out our Mammoth Weather Section.
