Recent Weather

We have a trace of snow at sea level, 15 inches at 1500 feet, and 30 inches at 2000 feet. The snow pack increases further inland and at higher elevations. Above tree line, variable winds have scoured exposed features and filled in depressions.

Weather models have been inconsistent. However, expect precipitation and temperatures to increase Wednesday night through Thursday. Models suggest an inch of water tonight and another inch Thursday. The freezing line will climb, bringing a mix of rain and snow to sea level. Depending on how warm it gets, we could see 2 feet of new snow in the upper mountains. East wind will load western aspects. Above tree line, the avalanche hazard may increase, especially on western aspects.
