Mammoth Lakes Weather & Climate

The Central Sierra Nevada Mountains , near Yosemite National Park, experiences four exciting seasons. Summers are warm to hot with occasional rain or thunderstorms (especially in the higher elevations.) Fall is variable with conditions that can run from warm to cold, wet to dry to snowy. Most of Yosemite National Park stays open through November, but short-term closures can occur due to snow. Winter in the Central Sierra Nevada Mountains is very snowy and cold. The amounts and intensity of storms can be quite severe at elevations above 7,000 feet. Tire chains are often required on many of the mountain roads in winter. Spring is sunny and relatively mild but can still experience a snowstorm. With rains and snow melt, spring is one of the best times to see the many beautiful waterfalls in the area.
