Your Weekend Snow Report is brought to you by Rocky Mountain Powersports.


WESTERN WYOMING AVALANCHE ADVISORY

Temperatures warmed into the 30s and 40s in the mountains and to near 50 degrees in the valleys today. Moderate southeast winds in the Teton and Southwest Trails areas kept temperatures in the upper 20s at an elevation of 10,500 feet. Skies were clear. Daily melt-freeze cycles are causing the snowpack to settle.


FORECAST FOR Thursday, March 14, 2019

Conditions will remain dry overnight. Temperatures will drop below freezing during the evening hours. A low pressure center will move into southern Nevada. Moisture associated with that system will bring some clouds to the region on Thursday. Daytime highs will rise into the 30s and 40s in the mountains and to near 50 in the valleys. Winds will be from the east and generally light with moderate gusts on the higher peaks.

In all areas the wet snow avalanche hazard will be low in the early morning hours and rise to moderate after snow surfaces soften. In the Togwotee Pass and Greys River/Southwest Trails areas dangerous persistent slab avalanches with depths to six feet are a potential hazard in isolated areas. In these areas the general avalanche will be moderate all day.


TREND THROUGH THE WEEKEND

Skies will become overcast with a chance of mountain snow showers. Less sunshine and slightly cooler temperatures may decrease the wet snow avalanche hazard.
