Carson Pass Receives As Much As Two Feet Of Additional Snow 

Over the past few days some stretches of Highway 88 over Carson Pass received as much as two feet of additional snow.  After the weather cleared yesterday, Caltrans crews went out and began the process of clearing the high country snow and debris from the Highway and the other regional highways.  We reported last week that the California Department of Water Resources was estimating that the Sierra snowpack was around 67-percent of its average for the date.  As of late yesterday, electronic sensors put the figure at 84-percent of average.  The numbers show the northern sierra is 79-percent, the central sierra which includes Amador and Calaveras counties, is 87-percent and the southern sierra is 86-percent.  More snow is forecasted through this weekend.
