Issued on Mon November 30, 2015 6:07 PM    


Limited moisture associated with a slow moving low pressure system brought a trace to two inches of new snow to the region overnight. Some low clouds and snow flurries associated with that disturbance lingered over the mountains during the morning hours before skies cleared in the afternoon. Temperatures were in the single digits and teens. Winds were west to northwest at 5 to 15 miles per hour.

A shallow snowpack with depths of 20 to 30 inches at the upper elevations and depths of less than a foot at the lower elevations mantles our region. Snow surfaces are comprised of areas of wind pack and dry loose powder snow. Faceted snow persists within the snow pack.

FORECAST FOR Tuesday, December 01, 2015

Mainly dry weather is expected. Skies will be mostly sunny above areas of morning valley fog. Temperatures will drop into the single digits overnight and rise into the teens on Tuesday. Winds will be light at around five miles per hour from the northwest.

Mostly stable snow exists and avalanches are unlikely. No avalanche activity has been reported during the past nine days. The general avalanche hazard is LOW. Normal caution is advised. Watch out for unstable snow in isolated areas.

TREND FOR Wednesday, December 02, 2015 AND Thursday, December 03, 2015

Dry conditions will prevail as temperatures slowly warm and temperature inversions develop. No significant changes in the avalanche hazard are anticipated.
