Tuesday Morning 8:30 AM

After a mild day today with light winds and highs in the mid 40s, the next weather system will bring increasing winds late tonight with wind advisories in effect for the Mono County area beginning at 10:00AM Wednesday through Wednesday night, 10:00PM. Snowfall will begin here in Southern Mono County Wednesday mid to late evening and will increase during the early morning hours Thursday.  This storm system is different from last weeks fiasco as its energy will lift through the sierra and not split and head south down the coast. Thus orographic’s will come to play and amounts being only moderate as there “is not” an atmospheric river associated with it. The Dweebs are expecting approximately 6 to 10 inches above 8000 feet including the crest and 4 to 6 inches between 7000 and 8000 feet. It is possible that the crest may see a bit more as again,  orographics come into play combined with colder temps. This will provide for higher than usual snow to water ratios.

This mornings forecast calls for about .75 hundreds QPF.

The weekend looks partly cloudy with milder weather and slowly rising temperatures Saturday through Monday.

The next weather system will come through by about month’s end.

New 00Z Monday the 22nd GFS is running at the moment and consistent with this mornings run in bringing a storm Wednesday night into Thursday with moderate amounts over the upper elevations and light amounts in town. Light category is 1 to 6 inches and moderate is between 6 to 18 inches. Contrary to the last system and as of this time, the energy is expected to come through the sierra instead of diving south down the coast.  The southward dive of the storms dynamics is what caused the lack of precipitation on the east side last week. Will update the details of this weather system for Wednesday night and Thursday,  tomorrow and again Tuesday to make sure that there are not any changes in the development as was the case with the last storm.

In the meantime we have a small system that will bring some snow showers late tonight into the late morning hours Monday.  Anyware from a dusting in town to an inch or two over the sierra crest is possible by noon Monday.
