ERROR 999998 when saving a raster after Con

I am trying to do a very simple calculation on a raster. 

 I have done this kind of work many times, but I can't figure out what has gone wrong this time around.


import arcpy, numpy
from arcpy import env
from import *
import time
start_time = time.time()
env.overwriteOutput = True
env.workspace = "G:/GIS Data/DMSPOLSRC/Radiance_Calibrated"
arcpy.env.scratchWorkspace="G:/GIS Data/scratch"

inRaster1 = arcpy.Raster("F12_19960316-19970212/F12_19960316-19970212_rad_v4.avg_vis.tif")
outCon = Con((inRaster1 ==0), 0 , 4.336+tempRaster)
print time.time() - start_time, "seconds, f121996completed"


Python returns the following error message

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "G:\GIS Data\DMSPOLSRC\Radiance_Calibrated\", line 16, in <module>
RuntimeError: ERROR 999998: Unexpected Error.


In other words something is going wrong when it tries to save the raster. I cant figure out for the life of me whats happening. 

I should note the following

a) If I comment out the problematic line, it moves on and prints the time taken. In other words, it seems like there i no problem with the raster calculation itself.

b)  If I go into ArcMap and use the raster calculator there, there is no problem if I  save the outRaster to an existing geodatabase folder. However, it will return the following error when I try to save it to the target folder  above:
