Awoke to clear skies but 6" of new heavy wet snow in town - 7,800 elevation - more above, turning lighter today as the cold front passes through with more new storms projected later. Stay tuned!

On this the eve of the winter solstice of 2015...(days will be getting longer soon enough)...lots of wet blowing snow and continuing - forecast same all this week too - Sierra. BTW, today Mammoth Mountain reported winds of 118 mph across the crest. Only one lift open...
Still, looking like a promising winter to come, starting tomorrow.

As the http://cdec.water.ca.gov/cgi-progs/queryF?TES appears to be down (I alerted them; probably hit by lightning again), I now look at

http://cdec.water.ca.gov/cgi-progs/queryF?DAN It's close enough to what is happening near the Tioga Entry station.

Looks good so far.. 50" on the ground with a WC of 11.80". Keep snowing, mother nature!!
