March 20th….7:15am

Mammoth Mt reports 7 to 10 inches of snow overnight…..the WX front with this storm is through Mammoth….However there are several VORT centers that will keep the weather showery today through Thursday. There is another 2 to 4  inches over the upper elevation possible through tomorrow.

So the secondary’s will roll in tonight and tomorrow as a couple of vort maxes roll through.  Any one of them could produce 1 to 3 inches as they are convective and may have some thunderstorms with them. Some Isolated amounts may be up to 6 inches in a few areas.  The next system Friday night may Bring some 5 to 7 inches over the crest…Friday night into a Saturday morning……MORE LATER….

Spring will roar in like a lion this year as several light to moderate snow producing systems head into Southern and Central CA.    A blocking high over BC, CANADA sets the stage for undercutting and a California storm track. Although the block over BC favors Southern California…….According to the ecmwf, the block retrogrades west to Alaska toward the end of the month for a better shot at Northern and Central Ca according to teleconnections.

So far, these systems are not all that impressive moisture wise.  Expect some 5 to 8 inches from the Wednesday-Thursday system on Mammoth Mt, with another but weaker system Friday night into Saturday.   Daytime high this week will average in the 30s and 40 while lows in the Teens and Twenties.  In the Town of Mammoth, expect between 2 and 5 inches by Thursday with a few more inches Saturday.

This is the last weekend of Winter and the Dweebs have spring fever, longing for highs in the 50s….  The Vernal Equinox arrives early this year on Wednesday the 20th at 1:58 PM. Apparently, this is just in time for more snowfall….

Another unsettled pattern begins early Wednesday morning and should continue a few days.  Snowfall will be in the light to moderate range.   This new pattern is nothing like the ones of February. The system for Wednesday will push into Southern CA and become closed off with wrap around circulation and snowfall highlighted above 6000 to 7000 feet.  In that the upper flow is Southerly to begin with, no orographics are indicated as the system moves in to enhance precipitation.  Best snowfall may be coming in from the ENE. Expect about 2 to 4 inches in town and some 4 to 7 inches on the mountain….  Another system will move in later next weekend. That one “may” do a bit better as it comes in a bit further north, however,  it too looks splitty and thus tricky!.   More will follow after the weekend storm….. With an amazing snowpack….it does not take much to freshen it up!


Don’t Forget…..IKON Passes for winter 2020, are on sale now at the lowest prices of the year…..


Stay tuned to Mammoth Best Weather for the Dweebs!
