Light snow fell yesterday and last night up and down the Sierra, Inyo and White Mtns. Even the Alabama Hills picked up a little of the white stuff. The closed low that caused this is now pushing into Northern Baja. For today, there is still a slight chance of a residual shower or two in Mono and Inyo Counties. But things will gradually clear in response to an upper ridge building in on Wednesday. That ridge will be short lived as another low moves in on Thursday. Thus a slight chance of showers again, particularly for Mono County then. That low moves southward on Friday leaving cool but dry conditions for the weekend.
