Storm Total for the Village at Mammoth 1.73 inches….This morning there is between 1 and 2 inches on the deck at the 8200 foot level. What is outstanding is the total rain/snowfall in inches here at Mammothweather.com.
A whopping 8.02 for the month of October! The Dweebs do not recall that much precipitation occurring during the month of October…. As a note…this moisture has been mostly subtropical in origin…
There is a small system that will brush through late tonight and into the morning hours for Tuesday bringing some snow showers. Amounts should be no more than an inch or so…
The simple answer to the question “what happened to all the snow” is that the cold air was delayed and most if not all of the precip was in the warm sector….Mammoth Weather picked up 1.73 inches of water so far. 99% of it was rain or rain/snow mix. The good news is that Mammoth Mt as of 10:36 pm has picked up 2.34 inches of water so far. That means that elevations above 10K has between 18 nd 24 inches of fresh snow. The next system is favoring Northern CA. The Dweebs expect some snow showers Tuesday morning…..then a break in the storms though at least next Friday.
