      ... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from 3 PM this
      afternoon to 4 PM PDT Monday above 5000 feet...

      A Winter Storm Warning above 5000 feet remains in effect from
      3 PM this afternoon to 4 PM PDT Monday for the higher elevations
      of the southern Sierra Nevada.

      * Snow accumulations: 16 to 26 inches of new snow is likely.

      * Timing: snow will begin mid to late afternoon near Yosemite
      and spread quickly south during the early evening. The snow
      will be heaviest during the overnight and morning hours...
      becoming showery by Monday afternoon.

      * Locations include: Tuolumne Meadows and Mariposa Grove in
      Yosemite park... Sierra Summit... Huntington Lake... Shaver
      Lake... Wishon... Hume Lake... Giant Forest... Lodgepole... Camp
      Nelson.

      * Winds: southwest 30 to 50 mph with gusts to near 70 mph over
      the crest will create areas of blowing and drifting snow.

      * Impacts: heavy snow will cause travel difficulties and
      possible Road closures into Yosemite... Sequoia... and Kings
      Canyon National Parks.

      Precautionary/preparedness actions...

      A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of snow are
      expected or occurring. Strong winds over the ridges are also
      likely. This will make travel very hazardous or impossible.

        ... at 111% of normal precip for today s date, it s really not an incredible snow year, but much better than the more common 60% or so drought years. No

          at 111% of normal precip for today's date, it's really not an
          "incredible snow" year, but much better than the more common 60% or so
          drought years. No matter how hot spring will be, there should be plenty
          of snow in shady areas or north slopes even at 9000 feet around July 1.

          Long range, at least in the view of the Mammoth Dweebs
          (http://izotz.com/dweebreport/ ), the weather seems to be headed towards
          spring for good:


          SUNDAY'S LONG RANGE:

          MJO NOW QUITE WEAK AS IT TRAVELS EAST.....WOULD EXPECT PATTERN TO BECOME
          QUITE BLOCKLY AFTER MID MONTH AS MOTHER NATURE TAKES HER FOOT OFF THE
          GAS....PACIFIC AAM NOW IN DECLINE....THE DWEEBS EXPECT A BIG CHANGE NOW
          IN THE WX PATTERN OVER THE WEST COAST DURING THE SECOND HALF OF APRIL.....
