Mammoth Daily Snow

Heads up, there may be fresher snow! Read the latest Mammoth Daily Snow

The Melt is On!


Warm and showery weather is possible over the next 5 days. Pop up thunderstorms are possible over the weekend into Monday. Chances for snow are slim to none as we finish off the month of May. Temps are likely to decrease by the middle of next week into early June for more seasonable weather, as Spring closes and summer begins.

Short Term Forecast

If you hadn't noticed, Spring is most definitely here, if not early Summer. We're less than 2 weeks away from the 1st of June, which is officially the start of meteorological summer. So, maybe we're a couple weeks early, or it's just what we needed after a very long, very cold, and record breaking snowy winter. 

I mentioned in my last post that we could see some rain showers off and on throughout this week and that continues to be the case. Overall I'm expecting us to see some pop up showers and thunderstorms throughout the rest of this week into early next week. 

Our best chances at seeing moisture will likely be Saturday through Monday, May 20th - 22nd. Temps will remain quite warm with near 60 degrees around 9K FT. Temps in the upper 40's to low 50's are expected up on the summit. Winds should be pretty minimal as well over the next 5 days. 

Once we get into the middle of next week a cool off should begin with more seasonable temps returning. Highs in the mid to lower 50's are likely with maybe even 40's returning by Memorial Day weekend. 

As far as snow goes... we really might be done with that for the season. I know it's a bittersweet thing to mention but as far as I can see we don't have any cut-off lows dropping into our region, nor do we have temps dropping low enough for appreciable snow opportunities. 

Extended Forecast

The last week of May, which includes Memorial Day weekend will likely be more seasonable with cooler temps, and at this time is looking drier. That may change as we get closer, since we're in a transition season. 

But as far as I can see we'll be ending May on a non-snowy note. Being 2 inches away from 900 inches on the summit... may just have to be the next milestone we need to reach for another record breaking season. 

There's always June though... 

I'll likely post a couple more times before I wrap up my Daily Snow's for this historic season. Enjoy the incredible coverage on the mtn. as we transition from Spring into Summer. 

Till the next one... Mike out.
