'Storm' delivers less than a quarter inch

(Delaware North Companies | CONTRIBUTED)Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015 - 12:45 p.m. - The weather system that brushed the county this morning delivered .22 inch of rain to Mariposa, and a dusting of snow to Badger Pass ski area's 7,200-ft. base.

The ski area needs close to a foot of new snow to reopen, however.

More precipitation is possible over this week's Thursday and Friday time frame, but computer models "have been very inconsistent with the track of this low, giving forecasters very little confidence in measurable rain," the National Weather Service said today.

While January precipitation has been sparse, enough runoff has trickled out of the high country to raise Lake Don Pedro's level, the Don Pedro Recreation Agency said on Monday. As of this week, the agency reopened its low-water boat ramp at the Moccassin Point Recreation Area, but only for "shallow draft boats," the agency said in a press release.
