From Monterey:

Todays precipitation will be the last accumulations we will see
for the remainder of the month. On average, January is running
around 120-150 percent of normal for the month. While January is
pulling its weight as far as these precipitation totals go, we
entered 2018 with quite a precipitation deficit from the well
below average rainfall to end 2017. As a result, most locations
are generally running below average rainfall for the water,
typically from around 55-75% of normal for the water year,
depending on location. These water year precipitation values will
likely drop a fair percentage before we see our next significant
rain system arrive.

I've basically given up on this season. At least Tioga Pass will open early? :( :shock:

Now you're talkin', last summer was brutal! I have never seen that many mosquitoes up there in all the years going up there.

They've been blowing snow all last week.

.DISCUSSION...

An amplified and blocked pattern through the Pacific Basin will
provide an extended stretch of relatively quiet weather through
much of next week. An upper level ridge will be the main influence
on our weather for the next week with dry conditions, above
average temperatures, and light winds expected.

Thank goodness, it's about time we get a break from this relentless barrage of winter storms. It will give me a chance to dig out.

The mosquitos will be replaced by yellow jackets - I’d rather have the mosquitos, not that I like them either. But the damn yellow jackets go nuts after a warm, dry winter.
