April in the Mono Basin was near-average, but slightly on the cool, dry, and windy side when compared to recent years. Although the high temperature on April 1st was 72 degrees F, the last two weeks struggled to get out of the 50s.

Lee Vining precipitation in April was between the median and mean, while precipitation at Cain Ranch was half the median and one-third of the mean. In other words, Lee Vining had close to average precipitation, but it was drier to the east.

What a strange way to report precipitation! Sounds like a statistics test question.

Does that mean the snow will melt slower and less chances of flooding and a longer summer of waterfalls?

No, it just means the snow hasn't been melting as it usually does so far.
