    ‘Miracle March’? Feet of Sierra Snow Beginning This Weekend Is Just What California Needs

    By Linda Lam

    At a Glance

    • A slow-moving storm will bring heavy snow to California’s Sierra beginning this weekend.
    • Several feet of snow may accumulate through the middle of next week.
    • This is great news for the state’s snowpack, a key for replenishing reservoirs in spring and summer.
    • California’s record driest February increased concern for drought.
    • Snowpack remains much lower than average in the Sierra, but reservoirs generally remain in good shape.

    Much-needed snow will blanket California’s Sierra Nevada high country this weekend into next week, bringing hope of a “Miracle March” that could replenish vital, water-providing snowpack after a record-dry February.

    A major change in the weather pattern is ahead for Northern California as unsettled and colder conditions will emerge. This change will be accompanied by low pressure that will track southward near the West Coast this weekend and will remain near California early next week before this system pushes eastward into the Great Basin.

    Significant precipitation in Northern California is often associated with this pattern, the National Weather Service office in Sacramento commented in its forecast discussion Thursday morning.
