Recent Weather

Last week brought dry cold weather and light variable wind, allowing the avalanche hazard too decrease. No snow exists at sea level, a foot sits at 1000 feet, and 4 feet rests near our local peaks. Temperatures are rising as stormy weather approaches.

Expect an inch of water Sunday, 2 inches Monday, and 2 more Tuesday. Wind will blow strong from the east. The freezing line should start at sea level but increase. The big question is how much snow will fall in the upper mountains before changing to rain. The avalanche hazard may increase.
