Mountain Weather Forecast for Today

Expect increasing cloud cover throughout the day as an upper level low pulls moisture into the region and creates cyclonic lift. Light snowfall may begin this evening, and terrain east of the divide will be favored with this weather pattern.
Temperature Forecast for 8,000´-9,000´: Rising into the low to mid teens.
Ridge Top Wind Forecast for 10,000´: Easterly at 10 to 20 miles per hour.
Snowfall Expected Next 24 Hours: 1 to 3


The snowpack is mostly stable. However, backcountry travels venturing into very steep and heavily wind loaded terrain features above 9,000 feet might be able to trigger a pocket of wind slab up to 18 inches deep. Remember, the snowpack is still very shallow; rocks, downed trees and stumps lurk beneath the snow surface. Below 9,000 feet, shallow snow depths further reduce the likelihood of avalanche activity.
