Mammoth is only forecast to see 1-3″ of snow from this storm.

It hasn’t snowed in California since December 3rd.

After this quick storms blows through, California is back to nothing but sunshine through at least Christmas Day.

“Then, snow begins to fall over Tuesday night bringing rapid accumulations along and just ahead of a strong cold front. While totals will not likely be excessive, the snowfall rates will be quite rapid. Expect to need extra time for your Wednesday morning commute due to degrading road conditions and lower visibility.” – NOAA Reno, NV yesterday
