The Mountain Area welcomed up to nearly three-tenths of an inch of rainfall early Wednesday, Oct. 28, with further showers expected in the evening and picking back up Sunday and Monday.
Cindy Bean, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Hanford, said mountain showers began around 4 a.m., and continued until noon at some weather stations.
She said the weekday rainfall was expected to last into early Thursday morning, with dry conditions until Sunday evening, when a 40% chance of rain, perhaps more than received Wednesday, is predicted to occur.
“In the Oakhurst area, we’ll see a 30% chance Monday and into Monday evening,” Bean continued. “These remain unsettled storms, with slight chances of rain in the surrounding Mountain Area all the way through Wednesday next week.”
At the Bass Lake Marina, 0.29 inches of rain fell by 10:45 a.m. Wednesday, according to the Weather Service’s latest data, with 0.25 in Oakhurst along a Miami Highlands Drive station, 0.21 in Coarsegold, 0.19 in North Fork, and 0.17 in Yosemite Lakes Park.
Bean said specific reports on snowfall above 9,500 feet had yet to be received.
