Degrees of Avalanche Danger

Weather

Moderate to strong northeast wind Tuesday moved snow and the avalanche hazard toward southwest slopes. Light precipitation fell as the freezing line climbed from sea level to 2000 feet. Mild conditions since have led to increased snow stability.

Expect cold nights and dry weather into Saturday. Sunshine is having an increasing effect. Models suggest an inch of water Saturday night through Sunday, with the freezing line climbing a bit above sea level. This should translate into a foot of snow above tree line. Winds will probably load western aspects. The avalanche hazard may increase then.
