The feel of winter is back in the Eastern Sierra, at least for the moment! Leave your t-shirts in the drawer, as high temperatures will be in the mid to upper teens today around 10,000’, and scattered light snow showers are expected thru today, increasing into tonight, and possibly lingering into Tuesday morning, with up to 3-5” of total new snowfall. Winds should be light out of the west with gusts up to 30mph at higher elevations, shifting out of the NE this afternoon. This will be due to an upper level low-pressure system centered over the OR-NV-ID border this morning that will gradually move south over Mono County this afternoon and evening.
For Tuesday, temperatures will remain cold, and winds will increase ahead of another light disturbance that could bring isolated flurries on Wednesday. High pressure will then return thru the weekend, before another cold front pushes in from the north, again dropping temperatures significantly, and bringing in the possibility of more light snow showers.
