Recent Weather

Rain and snow last week caused several small to large avalanches. We received another ½ inch of water Monday, with the freezing line coming down to sea level. This translated into a trace of new snow at sea level and 5 inches of snow above 1500 feet. Strong north wind is now moving available snow. With low humidity, much of this snow is sublimating back into the atmosphere, though some wind slabs should be expected on southern aspects. Also, sunshine is increasingly affecting southern to western slopes.

Expect clear skies and strong north winds into Friday. The avalanche hazard should remain the same through then.
