Warm temperatures last weekend brought rain to the peaks. Rain intensity increased Monday before the freezing line dropped abruptly Monday night while heavy precipitation continued. This left some wet snow at sea level and over 2 feet of heavy new snow above tree line. Moderate wind loaded western aspects. Observations have been limited, though some avalanche activity occurred. Precipitation tapered Tuesday, allowing the snowpack to begin adjusting.
Expect some light precipitation Wednesday, though not enough to significantly affect the avalanche hazard. Backcountry users should continue to use caution as the snowpack drains and adjusts. Conditions look to dry out through Thursday, promoting snow stability.
