Thank you to everyone who supported our spring fundraiser. We reached and even exceeded our goals. The Utah Avalanche Center could not exist without your support.
The Tony Grove Snotel at 8400' reports about a foot of heavy new snow with 2.8" SWE in the last three days. There's 90 inches of total snow, and it's 24ºF this morning. I'm reading 19ºF at the 9700' CSI Logan Peak weather station, and northwest winds are currently averaging around 17 mph.
Here is a short video from Utah Avalanche Center Staff about Spring snow.
Strong high pressure aloft will build into the region beginning today, and continuing through the remainder of the week. This will bring a warming and drying trend to the area.
It will be mostly sunny today in the mountains, with high temperatures at 9000' expected to be around 39ºF and 11 to 16 mph north-northwest wind. It will be mostly clear tonight with low temperatures around 26ºF, and 14 to 20 mph west-northwest winds. Tomorrow will be sunny, with high temperatures of around 46ºF and 8 to 14 mph northwest wind.
During periods of clearing in the past couple days we could see evidence of fresh natural wet avalanche activity in the Mount Naomi Wilderness and in the Logan Peak Area from Cache Valley.
Numerous fairly large natural wet loose and a few wet slab avalanches occurred in the first half of April across the Logan Zone.
