Digging Out After the Storm
An unexpected storm blew in last night bringing a plethora of snow to the region, turning the humble homes of your forecasters into veritable snow caves (see photos below). Waste deep snow and 10 foot plow berms made returning to one's residence challenging.
The National Weather Service predicted light winds, above freezing temperatures and no precipitation. So when it began snowing at a rate of 10 inches per hour yesterday afternoon, many of Mount Shasta's residents were taken off guard. Overnight snow totals came close to 60 inches.
With the signficant amount of new snow in the last 24 hours and high northwest winds, we predict low avalanche danger and great spring skiing today. Don't be foolish. Get out there and enjoy this first day of April!
