The Tony Grove Snotel at 8400' reports 21 ºF this morning and there is 94" of total snow with 108% of average SWE for the date. It's 17 ºF at the 9700' CSI Logan Peak weather station, and southwest winds are currently averaging around 20 mph. Although the snow on most slopes is stable, heightened avalanche conditions still exist in places, and you might trigger 1 to 2 foot deep avalanches on some upper and mid elevation slopes. Solar warming could cause dangerous wet avalanche conditions on sunny slopes again today, with natural activity likely in places.
A cold pacific trough will cross the area midweek with accumulating snow to the valley floors. High pressure will build in after that bringing a more prolonged stretch of dry and mild weather. It'll be mostly sunny today, with high temperatures at 8500' expected be around 34 ºF, with 7 to 13 mph south winds. Snow will start late tonight, with 1 to 3 inches of accumulation possible. Low temperatures will be around 12º F, with 15 to 20 mph southwest winds. Snow will continue tomorrow, with 2 to 4 inches possible, high temperatures around 21 ºF, with 25 mph northwest wind, gusting to around 40 mph.
There were numerous natural wet loose avalanches visible from Cache Valley, and by yesterday evening the mountains looked like they were dripping hot wax.
Snowmobilers triggered a couple good sized soft slab avalanches on Saturday. One on a south facing slope at around 8700' in elevation in Boss Canyon in Franklin Basin near the Idaho State Line, the other on a southeast facing slope at around 8400' in White Pine Canyon. The avalanches appear to have failed on a thin sugary or faceted persistent weak layer on top of a melt-freeze crust that was on the snow surface at the beginning of March.
An interesting avalanche in the Ogden Backcountry adjacent to Snowbasin from yesterday 3/11/19. Looks like a wet avalanche triggered a soft slab as it overran a steep slope, and the avalanche took out a bunch of recent tracks.
A sled triggered soft slab avalanche from Saturday (3/9/19) in White Pine Canyon.
