Mountain Weather Forecast for Today
Skies will be clear with abundant sunshine under a building high pressure ridge.
General Avalanche AdvisorySunshine and warm temperatures will increase the wet snow avalanche hazard and create dangerous conditions on and beneath steep avalanche prone slopes. As the day warms at the upper elevations the potential for large wet slab avalanches to be human triggered or release naturally will increase. Warming conditions will also be increasing the potential for wet loose avalanches to occur on very steep slopes on a variety of aspects. The hazard at the upper elevations will be moderate in the early morning hours and will increase to considerable. The hazard below an elevation of 8,500 feet will be low in the early morning hours and will increase to considerable. Monitor conditions at all elevations for a rapid increase in the wet snow avalanche hazard and get off of and out from under avalanche prone terrain before conditions become unstable.
Today's Avalanche Problems
DESCRIPTIONLarge slab avalanches are likely at the upper elevations. These dangerous wet snow avalanches could be one to three feet deep may run into lower elevation terrain. Smaller wet loose slides are also likely on very steep terrain features. These wet slides may gouge down to the ground in areas where the snowpack is isothermal.
