A Wind Advisotry has been Hoisted by the NWS beginning at 8:00PM Tonight through 5:00AM Thursday AM.

A Winter Storm Warning has been Hoisted; Beginning 5:00AM Thursday through 11:00AM Friday for strong winds….Blizzard conditions and heavy snowfall.

NWS Comments;    “Heavy snow expected. Total snow accumulations of 6 to 12 inches near Highway 395, with 1 to 2 feet west of US-395 above 7000 feet. Winds gusting to 55 mph with Sierra Ridge gusts above 80 mph.”

The weekend will be fair with a warming trend into Monday.



The pattern forced by La Nina often changes in the spring as the deep stubborn cold trof in the mean over the eastern part of the country weakens and the pattern becomes more progressive. This process weakens the blocking system in the west. Thus storms can now favor the west for a time, before the cold seasons ends and the cold air from the GOA runs out. That is why after a long dry winter, Spring’s often times will come back wet for a time.

The weather forecast calls for a very breezy Tuesday morning with some snow showers and an inch or two of snow possible on Mammoth Mt.  A more signifacant snow producer is forecasted for Thursday and Friday with solid moderate amounts of snowfall expected.  15 to 20 inches possible over the upper elevations by Friday evening, between 6 to 12 inches in town. The weekend looks fair, so come on up and make some turns!

Another storm, around the end of the month will slow down a bit, so we’ll have a better look at its timing, later next week.
