Recent Weather

We’ve received 10 inches of snow down to sea level in the last 12 hours. Temperatures are near freezing and climbing with daytime heating. Winds are loading western aspects.

Weather models have been inconsistent but suggest an inch of water today, another inch Tuesday, and yet another Wednesday. This could translate into 3 feet of snow. The freezing line will fluctuate, climbing during the day. Moderate east winds will continue to load western aspects. The new snow is top heavy and will probably cause avalanche activity, especially during the heat of the day. The avalanche hazard will increase as new snow accumulates.
