Forecast for the Abajos Area Mountains
Issued by Mark Staples for Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - 6:50am
Avoid all steep slopes and all avalanche terrain today.
Heavy snowfall and strong west winds will make the avalanche danger HIGH on upper elevation, wind loaded slopes. All other terrain has a CONSIDERABLE danger. There will be three types of avalanches.
- Smaller avalanches of wind drifted snow should be happening naturally today.
- Avalanches may break much deeper in the snowpack on buried weak layers. These larger slides will be deadly and make for dangerous avalanche conditions.
- At all elevations and aspects, the new snow will continue accumulating today and should easily produce shallow avalanches.
