WINTER WEATHER ON CABDR-S
After an unseasonably warm and dry winter on the CABDR-South, the first real storm of the season is developing the week of January 25th, 2021. Expect snow cover down to the desert floor from the Mojave Preserve north for the next week. This generally melts off quickly once the storm passes. The higher elevations of Lippincott and Hunter mountain may not be passable for several weeks unless a warming trend develops. The highest elevations on the East Side of Cerro Gordo, (Section 6) and Section 7 Alternate will hold snow longer and may not be passable until late winter, pending either additional storms, or warmer weather. It has been a low snow year, thus far, for Southern California so it’s possible these sections may open back up earlier than the last few years.
We will follow up with any corresponding updates as they come in.
