This morning’s photo is from last evening’s snowfall.  9″ on the deck railings.  I can see blue skies as the sun is rising.  Beautiful.  Also, lots of work!

East MiWuk snowy morning
East Mi Wuk snowy morning, 7 a.m., Thursday, 7 January 2016

From this morning:

Another round of snow is coming to the Sierra Nevada.

A few lingering snow showers will remain over the Sierra Nevada today as yesterday`s vigorous storm system shifts east of the region. Only an inch or two of new snow accumulation will be possible today at the highest elevations. Higher elevation roadways are likely to remain slippery.

For the most part, Friday should remain dry as a gap between storm systems slides over the state. However, the break will not last long.

Another Pacific storm system is expected to move into Northern California by Friday evening. This system will move quickly across the state with snowfall likely over the Sierra Nevada by early Saturday morning.

Snow levels will remain moderately low, generally around 3500 to 4000 feet, between Friday and Saturday evenings.

Total snow accumulations of six to ten inches are expected on Friday and Saturday.

If traveling into the Sierra Nevada on Friday night or Saturday, be prepared for snow covered slippery roads, traffic delays and another possible round of chain controls.

Clearing and another brief break in the active weather pattern is expected on Sunday.

Chain control is at West Twain this morning.

    Thank you for these wonderful updates. My family and I, we plan to visit MI Wuk during the weekend and we use your blog to know what’s the weather going to be like. We live in the bay area, and we are excited to come there to play in the snow. We have two little children and they’d experience snow for the very first time 🙂

    Jerry, thanks so much for your kind words. “YOU” are my target audience. 🙂 I think the weather, this time of year, and with the conditions we’re having, is both important and interesting so……..stay tuned. Whenever the conditions change or explode with more snow, you can bet I’ll be posting about it. Have fun playing in the snow!
