Yesterday’s storm droped up to 10 inches on Mammoth Mt. Now it appears that we will have a bit of a break in the action today and Friday with warmer daytime temps with lighter breezes today. Highs near 50 is expected today here at the Village at Mammoth. Winds will begin to come up later Friday with highs in the mid 50s…
The next upstream system in the current zonal flow pattern is quite the windy one. Iso-heights are about as packed as I have seen them. A high wind watch has been hoisted for Saturday from the NWS for Mono County. Snowfall…..CRFC has .82 for the Yosemite Valley. So at the moment 5 to 10 inches between the main lodge and the crest possible. A few inches will fall in town as well.
Longer range keeps the hits right on coming with a storm about every 4 days. The storm for the end of next week is being portrayed by the ECMWF as a trof that will cut off….off the California coast with a big deep cut off upper low. In that scenario…..some areas may get a lot of snow……where ?????? Too soon to tell……
