WESTERN WYOMING AVALANCHE ADVISORY

Skis became overcast today ahead of an approaching cold front. Temperatures rose into the 30s and 40s in the mountains and into the 50s in the valleys. Winds were from the southwest at 5 to 15 miles per hour.

In the mountains the top foot or so of the snowpack has been subjected to multiple melt-freeze cycles. Dry snow exists below these surface impacts. Areas of isothermal snow are developing at the lowest elevations.


FORECAST FOR Thursday, March 28, 2019

A cold front is forecast to move through the area tonight. Along with colder temperatures widespread light snowfall is expected into Thursday. Accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are anticipated. Skies will be mostly cloudy on Thursday. Temperatures will be in the 20’s and 30’s in the mountains. Winds will be light to moderate from the northwest.

Cooler temperatures are likely to decrease the wet snow avalanche hazard in the mountains. A wet snow avalanche hazard may develop on very steep slopes at the lower elevations. The general avalanche hazard is expected to be low in the mountains and may increase to moderate at the lower elevations.


TREND THROUGH THE WEEKEND

A low pressure system moving into the Rocky Mountains from the Pacific coast will bring snow to the mountains and cooler conditions. The wet snow avalanche hazard should continue to decrease. Dry snow avalanche hazards may begin to develop at the higher elevations.
