Snow falls, temperatures follow

Close to 6 inches of snow had fallen at Midpines by noon on Saturday. Lows were forecast to hit 15 degrees on Saturday night and 17 degrees on Sunday.

A Saturday morning report said Yosemite's Badger Pass ski area has 8 to 10 inches of fresh snow on the slopes. The area is scheduled to open on Friday, Dec. 13.

The county will open several warming centers if the storm, or other conditions, cut power during the cold snap, county health officer Dr. Charles Mosher said.

If they do open, the toasty refuges will be located at Coulterville Community Center, Greeley Hill Community Center and the county health department building at 5085 Bullion Street in Mariposa.

Residents can call the county's emergency information line to find out if the centers are open at 966-1133.
