Massive Snowfall in the Wake of Winter Storm Noor

As the map above shows, from the Sacramento National Weather Service (NWS) Facebook page the storm left snow in California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range in excess of 10 feet at Sugar Bowl ski resort with other locations in the 8 to 9 feet range.

As the storm rolled through this past weekend, the NWS issued blizzard warnings:
