Ten to fifteen feet of snow for California

Several feet of snow have already fallen in the Sierra Nevada, with several more feet on the way.

One ski area, Squaw Alpine, has recorded 4.5 feet (137 cm) of snow, according to its Twitter account.

Another 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.5 meters) of snow could bury portions of the Sierra over the next 10 days, according to WeatherBell meteorologist Ryan Maue.

    In Boise, capital of Idaho, Wednesday, January 4, fell to 16.5 cm of snow, which was an absolute record for this date. The thickness of the snow cover was 38 cm – another record figure.

  2. This an opportunity to teach about the stupidity of the Donnar party thinking they could take a short cut and be on the other side of the Sierra’s before winter.
    While good that the water bank is returning to CA, these snows are just small events from what I recall as a kid in the bay area. If you were going to Reno or Tahoe in the winter, you took the chance of being stopped in Auburn or Placer for hours while CALTRANS opened up Hwy 80 and 50 and then it would be maybe 2 lanes.

  3. FEMA command big rig trucks everywhere in Northern CA. They must be expecting something big with the coming pineapple express. We are expecting another 15 ft of snow and 16inches of rain this weekend at lower elevations.
