*Winter Storm Warning in effect from 5pm Wednesday to 5am Friday*
Today will be cloudy with snow showers above 8500’ and rain below, with up to 5” of new snow by dark at higher elevations. Moderate SW winds are expected to increase this afternoon with gusts up to 80mph over ridgetops, along with high temperatures in the mid 30s around 10,000’.
Snow intensity will increase dramatically tonight thru Thursday afternoon/evening as a moderate to strong Atmospheric River brings heavy tropical moisture centered on southern Mono County with 2-4’ of snow expected around 10,000’, and 5’+ for locations along the crest. Snowline will remain high above 8500’ for most of this storm, until the very end when it will drop below 6000’.
Conditions should clear thru Friday afternoon, and then a cold front moves in dropping temperatures thru the weekend with chances of light snow showers. Expect high pressure with rising temperatures for next week.
