Ug...that that's a dismal total forecasted for February. On top of a dismal January. If I thought it would please Ullr, I'd offer to throw windy into the net. :rofl:

Wow, the weather service blew the forecast for today and now are doubling down for tonight :o

SO WENT AHEAD AND INCREASED QPF FOR MONO COUNTY,
ESPECIALLY ALONG THE CREST. GENERALLY, STORM TOTAL SNOW AMOUNTS
BELOW 7000 FEET WILL BE BETWEEN 5 TO 10 INCHES WHILE UP TO 20 INCHES
COULD ACCUMULATE AT THE CREST IN MONO COUNTY.


Yet this is their forecast for McCoy at 9900 feet.

Total nighttime snow accumulation of 4 to 8 inches possible.

What a disappointing bust of a "storm" (if you can even call it that). :(

Well you weren't the only one!

When it started I was surprised how weak it looked but sometimes these cold storms squeeze out way more precip on Mammoth than it appears is possible. Not this time unfortunately. Forecasts were a little more accurate for SoCal but they still overestimated snowfall even after Mammoth didn't get much and nothing was showing on radar or satellite.

I still hear people down here saying how much they have enjoyed skiing up there the past couple of weeks. That is really all that matters now, isn't it?

On today's Sierra Wave News:

Concerned by the uncontrollable – snow and gas prices

First the snow. According to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power website, the Mammoth Pass snowpack, in terms of inches of water, sits at 33.4 inches which is right on top of the long term average for this time of year. December and January looked like we might get a banner snow year. February, not so great.

The DWP snow pillow measurements show Mammoth Pass at 99% of normal to date. Rock Creek, 64%. South Lake, 68%. Big Pine Creek, 55%. Cottonwood Lakes, 48%. Precipitation measurements look even more grim. Lee Vining tops the list with 75% of normal to date. Long Valley, 48%. Bishop, 26%. Big Pine, 20%. Independence, 29%.

In the bigger picture, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reports that dry conditions will continue to cause problems in much of the United States and particularly in the West. According to a story in the Los Angeles Times, “A growing body of research suggests that extreme weather patterns such as drought are being driven by climate change.”
