I guess we’ll have to wait for next week…cause it just keeps snowing. This piece of news comes to us from www.mymotherlode.com. Sonora, CA– Due to another wet weekend, two area mountain passes will remain closed.

That’s according to Caltrans Spokesperson Chantel Miller who says the closure of Highway 108 Sonora Pass and Highway 4 Ebbetts Pass will be in effect until Monday when maintenance crews can reassess the roads.

The National Weather Service says that Saturday, a quarter to three quarters of an inch of rain is expected in the Sierra Nevada.

On Sunday, an additional quarter to three quarters of an inch of rain is likely in both the Motherlode and the Sierra Nevada. The possibility of showers will also continue on Monday.
Snow levels will remain above 7500 feet with several inches of accumulation expected on Sunday.

Highway 120 Tioga Pass has still not opened for the summer season.

The current forecast for Desolation Wilderness is saying 9-17″ by Monday night. Tuesday (don’t want to jinx it) looks like it could be the start of some sunny weather for us, maybe Wednesday, but regardless there’s a few more powder days on the horizon. Whatever your mentality tells you, the spring that never was, or the winter that keeps on giving, it’s going to snow again this weekend and maybe pop blubird next week with high’s in the 60’s. I think we can all live with that. You gotta love California!
