After a mellow day today….A late winter like storm will bring Wind, Cooling and Snow to the High Country This weekend into early next week…

For the Fisher Folks at the opener Saturday AM out at Lake Crowley,

Here is an excerpt from this mornings weather discussion from NWS Reno:

For Saturday, the main weather highlight will be stronger winds with widespread SW gusts of 45-50 mph in most areas, with 55-65 mph gusts in wind prone locations, and 80+ mph for Sierra ridges. While for most areas the peak winds are likely in the afternoon, there`s a possibility of a short periods of “enhanced downslope wind gusts of 60+” mph in parts of Mono County, early-mid Saturday morning as an upper level jet streak moves overhead. Blowing dust could produce areas of poor visibility over parts of western and west central NV, especially downwind of deserts, sinks and dry lake beds.


Boating on Crowley Lake will be hazardous Saturday…..


Precipitation will begin after Midnight Saturday night as a moist fetch moves into our region. The Freezing level will lower Sunday to the 6000 foot level and down to the 4000 foot level by Monday AM. Thus, this is an airmass more like February than late April.

Snowfall amounts look a bit less than yesterdays forecast, however should be at least a foot+ over the crest. So 6 to 12+ inches on Mammoth Mt and 3 to 6 inches in Town by Monday AM.

Expect showery weather Monday with a slight chance it will linger into Tuesday Afternoon.

Rapid warming will occur Wednesday and especially Thursday, so plan to get the freshies Monday into Tuesday as Spring Condition’s is expected to return Wednesday and beyond….
