Degrees of Avalanche Danger

Weather

We received an inch of water Sunday. Warm temperatures caused rain at sea level and a mix of rain and snow in the upper mountains. Moderate east wind moved available snow to western aspects. Some avalanche activity occurred in the upper mountains. Dry weather Monday allowed snow stability to increase. Temperatures at sea level have dropped below freezing at night, though an inversion has kept temperatures at 1500 feet in the upper 30’s. Above tree line, the top 4 inches of snow have been rain affected, while the rest is still dry and facetted.

Expect warm temperatures to continue. We may see some precipitation, but it should be light. The avalanche hazard will remain the same unless we get more water than expected.
