A quick hitting, weak front hobbled through last night, with Mammoth Lakes squeezing out a few inches of new snow. So not much precipitation with this one, as it paid the price for battling the big West Coast ridge. A short break then later today into most of Wednesday, with mostly sunny skies. Then a stronger, wetter and much colder system moves through our area mostly Thursday. It still looks like about 12 inches of new snow on Mammoth Mountain, with quite cold temperatures up top @ 10 degrees. There’s even a slight chance of snow showers in the Owens Valley by Thursday night. A nose dive in temperatures, the coldest air of the season, looks to impact Inyo and Mono County Friday through the weekend…DMATT
