Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
I don’t normally read you the weather reports, but there is a big one coming. In light of yesterday’s notes on skiing, the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Sierra Nevada from Tuesday 4 PM through Wednesday 4 AM. Snow levels could drop down to 5000 feet by Wednesday morning. 4 inches due by Wednesday morning over the higher elevations. Then a much more intense system will move into the area from Thursday night through Friday. Snow levels as low as 4300 feet by Friday with 6-8” to fall. All three of the Sierra Nevada passes are closed – Ebbetts (Hwy 4), Sonora (Hwy 108) and Tioga (Hwy 120) due to snow and icy conditions. Get the egg nog ready! Get your chains out of the closet.
