Recent Weather

We received near 3 inches of water Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The freezing line rose from sea level to 1500 feet. The result was a bunch of slush at sea level, 2 feet of heavy snow at 1500 feet, and up to 3 feet in the upper mountains. Moderate east wind loaded western aspects. Observations have been mostly obscured, however, a few medium sized avalanches occurred mid to upper mountain. Precipitation tapered Thursday, yet lingered with the wind.

A warmer and wetter storm is moving in. Expect at least another 3 inches of water Friday into Sunday. Moderate winds will continue to load western aspects. The freezing line should climb above our local peaks Friday night and Saturday. Avalanche activity is probable on steep western aspects at tree line and above, especially during the heat of the storm.
