Another 3 to 5 inches of snow fell on Mammoth Mt the past 36 hours.  A few showers are still possible today Saturday as the small storm exits to the east….Sunday looks fair with highs near 50. The next and last upstream system weakens as the upper blocking ridge in the GOA shifts east to the BC, Can coast Sunday. The remains of the short wave comes in Monday into Tuesday AM negative tilt…with showers and possible thunder showers.   The snow level can still give Mammoth Snow Showers.  There after, the upper jet pulls north for an extended period as the long wave Trof sets up north of Kauai and long wave ridging sets up inland over the Far Western States.   With this change, comes much above normal temperatures for California.  This is likely to develop during the 2nd half of next week. In fact, there is even the possibility of near record highs for the Owens Valley the next Sunday or following Monday. (between 85 and 90)  With that said, until a good part of the snow is gone in the high country, it will be difficult to achieve record highs as they most likely occurred during the driest years.  Nevertheless,, 60s is still possible in Mammoth by about the end of next week or early the following week!


Let the serious runoff begin!!
