The Tony Grove Snotel at 8400' reports 15º F and there's 37"of total snow, containing 114% of average SWE for the date. It looks like it's snowing lightly in the mountains this morning. It's 14º F at the 9700' CSI Logan Peak weather station and a south wind is blowing around 25 mph.
A snow squall is moving northward through the zone this morning, and it may stall, bringing an inch or two of accumulation to Cache Valley and the surrounding mountains today. Expect cloudy conditions, with high temperatures at 8500' around 20º F and 10 mph southwest wind. Snow showers may continue into the evening, but little accumulation is expected overnight. Low temperatures around 13º F are expected with light and variable wind. Tomorrow will bring mostly cloudy skies, with high temperatures around 22º F and 10 mph southwest winds.
Areas with heightened avalanche conditions exist on upper elevation slopes that held snow before the Thanksgiving storm. Dangerous human triggered avalanches remain possible. Much less danger and excellent powder conditions exist where is no old pre-Thanksgiving snow, but you'll need to watch for fresh wind drifts in steep terrain.
No new avalanches were reported in the Logan Zone since a natural cycle at upper elevations on Thanksgiving weekend. We could see evidence of some natural loose sluffs from Sunday in very steep terrain near Tony Grove Lake.
