2 Feet of New Snow in the Sierra Nevada

Posted March 28, 2007 by Laura Armstrong

p1000035blog.JPGIn reference to Gregg’s sporting event analogy for summer flow predictions, it looks like California’s water supply may be struggling to make a fourth-quarter comeback right now.

Over two feet of snow fell on some of the Sierra’s higher peaks during this recent storm, and lower elevations that would normally recieve rain got snow as well due to the colder air front associated with the storm.This means more water stored now for rivers to run later!
