LOS ANGELES (AP) — Scattered showers lingered around parts of California and Nevada on Monday after the weekend’s late-season storm.
The storm delivered mostly small amounts of precipitation to states deeply in drought but there were exceptions.
Some areas of the Sierra Nevada, mainly between Echo Summit and Sonora Pass, received between 3 inches and 8 inches (7.6-20.3 centimeters) of snow, the National Weather Service office in Reno said.
The storm also produced extremely high winds in the Eastern Sierra, where the Mono County Sheriff’s Office received several reports of swamped or capsized boats on lakes and one of its own boats got into trouble after performing a rescue.
The Sheriff’s Office said a patrol boat crew on Crowley Lake rescued four people and a dog from a small boat taking on water and then lost power due to a mechanical failure. The deputies were able to beach their boat and get everyone safely ashore..
No one was reported injured or missing in any of the reported incidents, the office said.
With conditions continuing quite cool, snow levels in Southern California mountains were expected to lower to 6,000 feet (1,828.8 meters) Monday and as low as 4,500 feet (1,371.6 meters) into Tuesday, forecasters said.
