FRIDAY APR 25 2014

Pacific storm is currently over NE California and it will push southward today thru our district and down in SOCAL. So the higher passes will probably be effected as early as this morning as the system drops south. Heaviest potential for rain/snow will happen later today and evening. With the storms cold air, snow levels should drop to about 5,000 feet later tonight and into tomorrow morning in Mono County. Inyo County should have a chance rain as well later today and this evening. Along with this, winds will kick up today and tonight as the surface low blows thru. Lingering showers over the mountains this weekend, then a strong ridge builds in off the coast for dry and warming conditions next week.

I expect about 10 – 20 inches of new snow over the Crest from this system.
