Recent Weather

After a week of dry weather, light snow is falling to sea level. Expect snow to increase Friday before tapering Saturday. Weather models suggest a ½ to ¾ inch of water and light east wind. This should translate into 6 inches of light snow at all elevations. Avalanches may occur on steep wind loaded western aspects above tree line, but should be small.

Warmer, wetter weather is expected by Monday. Models have been inconsistent, but the avalanche hazard will probably increase then.
