As of this writing it was snowing heavily in Mammoth Lakes…..
The next system or should I say systems will set up a long fetch and a protracted period of isentropic lift for the Southern and Central Sierra beginning later Thursday night through early Saturday morning. CRFC is painting about 3.5 inches of QPF for the Southern portion of the Central Sierra. So given Snow to Water Ratios…..Another 3.5 to 4.5 feet of snow between Thursday night and Saturday morning is looking good for the Crest at this time.
