More Snowfall on Mammoth Mountain with over a 1/2 Foot on the ground of New……WX to remain unsettled this week….

Snowmelt/rain tip bucket still busy this morning tipping off another 6 tenths by 8:30am with close to 4 inches of new snow here near the village and about 6 inches on the hill. This storm certainly was wetter then the models indicated. Again April is one of the worst months for model verification.
Of interest yesterday….then temperature spread between Bishop and Mammoth mid day was 35 degrees…..which usually qualifys for some pretty good wind inbetween the two areas!
The overall patten is still highlighted by a fast quasi zonal flow pattern across the Pacific. The Dweebs do not see any significant change in this pattern at least through the end of this month. Mean HT 500heights do drift a bit higher between 570dm and 576dm in the upcoming week so the systems may end up dryer for Mono County with milder temps….however that too remains to be seen.
