Most resort reporting over 2 feet of snow from yesterday’s storm, except for resorts in South Lake where the heavier snow bands missed. Most of that snow fell in less than 12 hours. Between 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. I recorded 5 inches of snow in an hour at my house, so some pretty heavy bands came through. Ended up with 15 inches here on the North Shore of the lake bringing the week’s total near 3 feet. Most of the resorts on the North end of the lake now reporting over 5-6 feet this week so far. Check out the resort totals tab.
A strong low pressure is currently off the coast of CA. The pressures with this storm could be some of the lowest to come over CA. The low will slowly move over Northern CA today. The problem is that all of the heavy precip will be coming under the low into Southern CA. Snowfall will be heavier in the Southern Sierra and then lessening as you go North. Still, expecting heavy snowfall to move in later this afternoon into tonight, with snow showers from wrap around moisture lasting through Friday. Looking for 4-8 inches at lake level, with 8-12 inches above 7000 ft. and 12-18 inches on the crest by Friday morning. Another 3-5 inches could fall Friday into Friday night from leftover snow showers. There could be more in areas that see heavier snow bands, and if the storm shifts slightly North the heavier snow would mover further North. That should put most resorts over 6 feet with some over 7 feet for the week.
Storm for Monday is looking a little faster now and should arrive Sunday night, followed by another storm Tuesday, and then another around Friday. Monday’s storm looks like a 6 incher and Tuesday’s is looking stronger. More on those tomorrow after we finish with this week’s train. BA
