Storm may pack surprising punch

(Delaware North Companies | CONTRIBUTED)Monday, April 6, 2015 - 9 a.m. - A cold Pacific storm system is forecast to drop close to an inch of rain over the county's lower elevations and as much as a foot of snow over the high country by Wednesday morning.

The event will be no drought-buster, however. "Dry and warm weather" will return to the area later this week, the National Weather Service said.

On Easter Sunday, a weaker storm sprinkled between a trace and a half-inch of rain over the county. Mariposa's automated weather station posted .18 inch of water on the holiday.

Yosemite rangers reported up to two inches of snow down to the 4,300-ft. elevation, a national Weather Service report added.
