Recent Weather

We have received over 2 feet of light new snow at all elevations since Thursday, much more than expected. Moderate east wind loaded western aspects. Some instability exists within the new snow. Warmer, wetter, windier weather is rapidly approaching.

Weather models are struggling so confidence is low. Expect 3 inches of water Monday with strong east wind. The freezing line will climb above the peaks. Expect avalanche activity, especially during heavy precipitation and as temperatures increase. Much new snow is available for entrainment. The avalanche hazard may increase if we get significant snow accumulation before temperatures peak. The weather looks to stay busy through the week.
