The prognosticators at the National Weather Service in Hanford have good news for Valley skiers and farmers.

“All in all, the wet weather coming our way will be very replenishing,” says the NWS in its Thursday morning weather discussion. “One week from today, we`ll be boasting about a healthy snowpack over
the Sierra, much to the delight of skiers.

“We`ll also get a cold reality check in the days ahead. High temperatures will run a few to several degrees below normal Friday through at least the middle of next week.”

What exactly is heading our way after today’s spring-like warm weather vanishes?

A series of storms beginning Friday afternoon and continuing through the middle of next week.

Snow as Low as 2,000 Feet

The biggest weather maker is expected Sunday afternoon and could drop snow levels to as low as 2,000 feet on Monday night, the NWS says.

That storm, according to the NWS, could drop a foot or more of snow in the Sierra at elevations above 7,000 feet.

Meanwhile, The Weather Channel forecast calls for rain Wednesday through Saturday of next week.

So, keep your rain gear handy. And, if you’re headed to the mountains, don’t forget tire chains.

Yosemite National Park Remains Closed

Yosemite National Park will remain closed until at least Tuesday as the park makes repairs and clears trees felled by recent high winds.

When the park reopens, it will adhere to an 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. schedule for day-use only because of the coronavirus pandemic, the National Parks Service says.

Visitors can expect limited services, including the absence of shuttles.

Tioga Road and Glacier Point Road beyond Badger Pass are closed due to snow and ice.
