Heavy Snow in the Sierra Nevada and Sierra Madre Mountains

2 Apr 2019, 10:10 am

A feed of moisture from the Pacific Ocean, coupled with a storm system moving through the West, will bring areas of heavy snow to the mountains. Winter Weather Advisories have been issued in the Sierra Nevada Range of California and Sierra Madre & Snowy Ranges of Wyoming.

3″ to 6″ of snow is possible above 6,500 feet in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, with isolated totals near a foot in the highest elevations. For the Sierra Madre and Snowy Mountains, 6″ to 10″ will accumulate, with a foot possible at the highest peaks.

A low pressure center along with a series of fronts will gradually move across the West. Snow will affect the Sierra Nevada today (Tuesday), diminishing late tonight. Snowfall will increase in the Wasatch, Rockies, and Sierra Madre Mountains this evening into Wednesday.
