Thanx, Benny. Always love your explainations and good work you and Craig put into the site. And the other Mods as well.

No, it doesn't work quite like that, in fact winds would really help stir up the air and equalize temperatures; it's when we have such stagnant/still air that things reverse, warm air rises and a pock of cool air sinks just below. It won't necessarily spill over the dam and mostly settles into the lowest parts of the Valley which would be more towards the east end of town, pretty much Division eastward, Baldwin Lake/Shay Meadow/Erwin, etc. Right now it would be a bit warmer around the lake given the current lake temperature @ about 60 degrees. A much more detailed explanation can be found here. [Click Here]

Is it the prevailing west wind that is preventing the air from sinking out of the valley?

I just so thought that cold air would drain down the valley and over the dam. What is the geography that maintains that inversion?

Benny (N6BWX)
Oct 24 : 12:50am
Yeah it's pretty crazy, heres more proof of our wicked inversion, at the top of Bear Mtn at about 8500 the current temperature is 52 degrees. [Click Here] Stuff! but not when we're trying to make snow...

Must be one of Benny's All Hallows Eve inspired mid-slope inversions. With the partial eclipse today and all. I'm just sayin'.

Wow. 37.6 at Shay Meadow and 66.7 here in Crestline.
