The Winter Storm Warning initially issued for today has been dropped to a Winter Weather Advisory. The highly anticipated Low pressure system that was hoped to move in directly over our area has headed further south, resulting in much less snow than anticipated, and snowlines falling much slower than expected, remaining quite high above 8500’ as of this morning.
For today (Tuesday), another ½” of water could fall at the Sierra Crest, with much less further down-slope. Temperatures will drop throughout the day into the mid 20s around 10,000’, and moderate S winds will gradually decrease.
For tomorrow (Wednesday), expect a mix of clouds and sunshine, temperatures reaching the upper 30s at 10,000’, and shifted moderate winds out the NW.
Longterm: High pressure is expected until the 3rd week of January, when the chances of more low pressure moving in and more moisture increases.
