As a 37 year resident of Mammoth Lakes, Howard has amassed detailed records of local conditions and experience with the unique–and varied–conditions of the Eastern Sierra. Howard also provided Air Quality Counseling for the Town of Mammoth Lakes.
Weather in the Eastern Sierra is unique and varies considerably from traditional weather patterns. It takes a seasoned local with years for forecasting experience to accuratley forecast the weather and ski conditions.
Mammoth Weather's Weather Letter is delivered to you every Monday and Thursday in the early a.m., allowing you to plan your long weekend adventure. When weather events dictate, additional alerts or warnings are also issued on an "as needed" basis, such as our Platinum Powder Alerts, and our "Heads Up" when more than 4 inches of fresh snowfall is occuring
Rather than confuse you with Weather "Geek Speak", our format allows you to easily understand what the weather is going to do over short and long terms.
Our Weather Letter is delivered to you in a already familliar format that you have known for years....Email. No it's not new, but is is reliable and does not require any additional training or support.
Each Weather Letter contains actual live charts, graphs, web cams, road conditions, and of course, Howard's famous weather forecasts. The data within the newsletter updates each time you open it. Need the current temps? Open your newsletter. All temps, wind, rain, snow data updates each time you open it.
Those who have been receving our Platinum Powder Alerts, and the Weekend Forecasts, will continue to do so for the short term, only on a less frequent schedule, and delayed by 8 hours from the new "Weather Letter" system. The future may bring the elimination of the non-paid weather alerts and newsletters. Those with paid subscriptions will be delievered their information ahead of most everyone else, including the website.
The cost and labor involved in bringing you these reports is quite high and extremely time consuming. The fees charged we feel are fair and allows Howard just rewards for his efforts.
