Snow storm, 1/31/16

Big, big flakes started about 8:15 this am. Soft, drifting 1/2 dollar size flakes, some silver dollar-sized. If it continues and sticks, I will have photos. Right now, I need to build a fire, have a second cup of coffee and watch with amazement. Later, I will have a 1/31/98 journal entry to compare to today’s totals (hint: we are seriously behind the 1998 totals.) Oh, my, this is so beautiful! BTW, Cone Peak shots are unlikely, as we are shrouded in the clouds.

From SLO Meterologist: “Total rainfall amounts will range between 0.75 and 1.75 inches with higher amounts in the Santa Lucia Mountains. Snow levels will fall as colder air filters into California. Snowfall will range between 12 and 18 inches for the southern Sierra & 6 and10 inches across the Tehachapi Range.

Snow levels will continue to drop to around 2,500 and 3,000 feet by tonight with a chance for some snow accumulation to reach down into the higher mountains of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties.”
