The recent rainfall on March 26 measured a half-inch in Three Rivers at 1,000 feet in elevation. That rainfall translated to a half-foot of snow above 8,000 feet in the nearby mountains.

Climatologists have predicted that precipitation in the southern Sierra region will mostly occur later in the season with warming atmospheric temperatures. That means if and when it does come, there will be more immediate runoff and significantly less snowfall.
