It’s been cool, cloudy and at times very wet. We have had rain, snow and hail over the last 7 days here in Mammoth Lakes.
Saturday was more of the same, clear skies until about 2:30 pm and then dumpage with .70 inches in the bucket at main lodge and 3-5 inches of new snow from 9000 feet up.
Look for more of the same afternoon and evening thunder storms into Monday and then we should start to dry out and warm up quickly.
Highs today Sunday will be in the 50s in town with 30s to low 40s up at the ski area. Winds will be out of the NW at 10-25 MPH at times up on Mammoth Mountain and in town to 5-15 MPH.
Things warm a few degrees on Monday with less of a chance for showers. That trends will continue all next week with the area drying up a bit, by next Friday we should have clear skies with a high of 70 in town and 60s up in the Mammoth Lakes Basin.
