Mammoth Lakes picked up some 12 to 14 inches of snow today Friday with Mammoth Mt snow plot showing 15 inches at the main lodge at 4:00PM. Another 6 to 10 inches is expected tonight, between the Town and the Mountain by mid morning Saturday.
There will be some kind of a break in the weather Saturday afternoon into Sunday with just some snow showers. Highs will be in the 30s with lows in the 20s. Another big storm is on the way for Mammoth late Sunday night. My current update shows that it is much less likely to bring rain in town as the models are coming in some 1 to 2 degrees colder with this storm now. The snow level looks to be just above highway 395 and 203 Monday afternoon. This is certainly good news for those that are concerned about earlier forecasts of flooding in the low-lying areas of town as well as holiday travelers headed home concerned about the weather on highway 395 south.
I will have a brief update via my weather letter Saturday for the Sunday night through Wednesday storm, Expect a more detailed forecast and outlook Monday AM and even a brief glimpse into the future for the week 2 possibly week 3 via the CFS.
