Since we’ll be cruising through there in a few days, I like to watch the NOAA weather for Tyndall crossing
http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lon=-118.38781955566411 <http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lon=-118.38781955566411&lat=36.642903936276696#.WQIIPIgrJaQ> &lat=36.642903936276696#.WQIIPIgrJaQ
Until the thaw starts, but after April 1st, high sierra snow is compact, hard enough to walk on without snowshoes, smooth, and covers most all creeks (above snowline). The thaw starts when nighttime temps stay above freezing and daytime temps rise from the 40s into the 60s or higher.
It’s not there, yet! I’m expecting (based on a feeling) the thaw to officially start late, say late May to mid-June, with a few minor snow storms between now and then. Take your 3-season tents and wait a day after each storm over a foot for avalanche safety!
We will be posting Snow/Trail/Creek Condition Reports for the southern Sierra each week starting May 10 at http://mountaineducation.org/trail-snow-condition-reports/
Play safe & stay found!

Above normal chances for precipitation, equal chances for above or below normal temperatures. Forecasts for 3-4 months out, of course, are pretty iffy. – Jim Ringland
