The overnight shift likes to forecast more rain than the afternoon one. Again, I went from 3" this AM to 2.36" now.

We probably should start taking notice of the high total qpf in the 7 day. If it doesn't melt all the snow it'll boost the water content by up to 30% or more in places.

News story:

Yosemite Valley will close to the public Friday ahead of a powerful storm that could bring flooding to the area, officials said.

Visitors were asked to leave by 5 p.m. and all overnight reservations were canceled through Saturday night, according to Yosemite National Park officials who say the storm may cause “significant impacts.”

That's a seriously large slug of moisture! Imagine how bad it would be if there was a trigger to release the deluge.

Thats the broadest AR of the season I think. The others have been narrower.

Rain has been very light and there is no wind with mild temps.

Yeah it's extremely broad. Puts this into perspective:

"One interesting factoid from this AR event is the projected total water vapor transport is greater than approximately 25 Mississippi Rivers worth of water."

The Mississippi River would barely be visible on a map with that scale.

It's just moving into the Mammoth area and the temperature at the summit is just above freezing as forecast.

So far this is an underwhelming (IMO) AR event. The local reporting station has .61" and the forecast is only for 1.5" more.

^^^Noticed precip. picks up north of the 80. The totals in general forecast didn't seem like time to break out the ark or anything...
I just remember seeing higher amounts in recent years.(maybe my memory is failing?)
Heck 48 hr. totals Honeydew has only 2". willits at 4.32" - big tree country.
Sounds like fun taking a stroll in big Redwood country..ferns, B.Slugs and all...
edit - 18Z GFS ; I take it this is in addition to totals already tallied.

It looks soggy and socked in on the hill. Rain at the summit when looking at the cam. It's been misting and/or raining very lightly in town all day with the sun in and out most of the time, but no deluge yet. Pretty warm at 50 degrees.

According to the TOML FB page press release yesterday:

Quote:
Flooding/Sandbags

Sandbags are available for residential property use at the Town Yard (299 Commerce Drive). The Town asks that you only take what you need and be respectful of others. To report areas of flooding, please call (760) 965-3681 and be prepared to leave a short, concise message. Your call will be returned in a timely manner. In the event of any emergency, please call 911 for assistance.


Edit: 5:15 p.m. Rainbow over town.

Still waiting for the "heavy rain". Its mostly been a steady light rain or drizzle. Its like Hawaii out there.

OK it has picked up slightly since I posted that. The "cold" front is formed off the coast and should come to this area sometime tonight.
