Sierra snowpack way higher than average

Snowpack ranges from 106-125% of normal, more than double last years total.___________

10 Dec 2018 – Snowpack in the central Sierra, from Tahoe to Yosemite, stood at 113 percent of average as of last Wednesday, while snowpack in the south Sierrstood at 125 percent of average last Thursday thanks to a huge storm that brought feet of snow to Mono County.

NASA satellite images show a snow-less California as late as Nov. 20.

By Dec. 2, most of the Sierra was white-capped.

Multiple weather systems over the last two weeks have led to snowstorms, travel delays on Highway 50, “near white out conditions” in isolated areas and plenty of fresh powder at Tahoe ski resorts.
