Recent Weather

We received 1 ½ inches of water in the last 24 hours. Temperatures decreased last night, bringing 6 inches of wet snow to1500 feet and probably a foot of snow in the upper mountains. Temperatures have quickly climbed this morning, bringing rain back up to our local peaks. Avalanches will occur today. Extra caution is advised for the highway. Backcountry users should avoid steep loaded slopes at tree line and above.

Weather should dry out overnight, allowing the avalanche hazard to decrease. More precipitation is expected by Friday. The avalanche hazard may increase then.
