Winter Storm Warnings are hoisted for the Eastern Sierra beginning at 7:00PM Tonight through 7:00PM Thursday night.   For the Owens Valley, the Warning begins at 5:00PM this afternoon through Friday Morning at 5:00AM

The highlights with the Sierra part of the storm will be Blizzard conditions tonight and the potential for temporary road closures during blizzard conditions. Less windy condition are expected later Wednesday….

The Village at Mammoth still looks to receive over 2 feet of snow and the upper mountain about 3 feet by Thursday.  It will be cold in town with highs upper teens Thursday and Friday. Lows well down to the single digits.


There will be a break in the weather Friday afternoon and night with a wetter storm moving in Saturday. This system has a narrow AR connected to it. It will begin as all snow over the lowest elevations of the county then the snow level will come up Sunday and Monday. The big questions is, how much snow will the Owens Valley get on Saturday from this small AR? The Snow is likely to change to rain later in the morning Sunday….


For the Mammoth Area, another 2 to 3 feet is certainly possible for the Saturday through Tuesday System. I will update the longer range for next week later this week. However, there appears to be a major AR type storm with a fetch extending well west across the pacific lurking in our future around the 6th or 7th of December….


Based upon current trends…..The Christmas Holidays should offer plenty of Snow pack for all outdoor enthusiasts..
