Recent Weather

We received an inch of water last Thursday with the freezing line around 2000 feet and east winds loading western aspects. A couple inches of light snow fell to sea level Saturday and Monday with northeasterly winds. More light snow has been falling to sea level this morning. We now have a couple inches of snow at sea level, increasing to 2 feet at 2000 feet.

Expect snow to sea level tonight into Friday. Models suggest a ¼ inch of water today, another ¼ inch Wednesday, and up to a ½ inch Thursday night. This should translate into a foot of new snow. Northeast winds will load southwest aspects. The avalanche hazard may increase if we receive more snow than expected. Otherwise, the weather looks to dry out Friday through next week.
