There wasn't much snow on the ground at the end of December, but that didn't stop the antics at the Wolverton Snowplay Area in Sequoia National Park.

WEATHER WATCH: December 28, 2018


The bone-chilling cold will persist at least into the first five days of 2019. High temperatures will be in the 50s; lows will be in the mid-30s for New Year’s Eve and New Year's Day.

A Christmas Eve lightning storm was accompanied by an inch of rain in Three Rivers. The year-to-date local rainfall total (2018-19) has now eclipsed four inches.

Snowpack in the nearby mountains is paltry with a foot on the ground at 7,500 feet. The next rain and snow is forecast to arrive Sunday, Jan. 6.
