It's sunny today in the mountains. See the photos from this morning. The roads, especially the highways, are clear and gravel or cinder has been dropped.
But the National Weather Service forecast is for a high of 34º, ice in the shade is unlikely to melt until tomorrow when temperatures are expected to cross above 40º. Yesterday more than 1.5 inches of rain fell at Keenwild Ranger Station.
The total since July 1 is now 18.83 inches. The average rainfall from July 1 through Dec. 31 is 9.22 inches. The annual average rainfall is 25.67 inches.
