The next upstream system heads into the high country late tonight with strong winds on the increase and wind warnings likely Saturday.

So up to a foot over the powder bowls of Mammoth Mountain. This storm is a rather fast moving system and should move rapidly out Sunday morning……
Improving weather is expected with flat ridging early next week. Highs will return to the 50s by Tuesday. The next upstream system about mid week……
3 to 5 inches in town (8000ft) because of the warmer temps…..
