NWS Reno has issued a Blizzard Warning and Avalanche Watch in effect from 4pm Thursday (2/29) to 10am Sunday (3/3) for Mono County and the Town of Mammoth Lakes.

Blizzard conditions are likely from Friday night through Saturday. Snow accumulations of 1 to 3 feet for communities along Highway 395 with 3 to 6 feet along the Sierra crest. Winds are forecast to gust as high as 75 mph in the lower elevations and above 110 mph over Sierra ridges.

Be prepared for a highly impactful storm across the Sierra with waves of very heavy snow, strong winds, and blizzard conditions from Friday afternoon through Saturday morning with near zero visibility in blowing snow. Prolonged travel disruptions are expected.

A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds are likely. This will lead to whiteout conditions, making travel extremely dangerous. If you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you. If you get stranded, stay in your vehicle.

Call 800-427-ROAD for current chain control restrictions or road conditions, listen to KMMT 106.5, Sierra Wave 92.5 or KIBS 100.7 FM, look for chain control signs throughout town or click here for a list of Taxi & Shuttle services, and other Snowsmart tips.

The Mammoth Lakes Police Department is reminding citizens and visitors that from November 1 through April 30, no parking is allowed along all town streets unless otherwise noted.

Town Road Closures: The Scenic Loop and Sherwin Creek Road will be closed by 3pm on Thursday, February 29 and will reopen when deemed safe by the MLPD.
