We've released the accident report for the 3-27-23 Pole Canyon avalanche. It's HERE
Large natural cornice falls are possible, and these or people could trigger 2' to 4' thick slab avalanches on drifted upper elevation slopes.
This morning's clouds will disapate and the sun will be out in full force. Solar warming will moisten the snow surface, quickly soften any crusts from overnight and elevate the danger of wet avalanches. Seasonal warmth will also warm up and soften the snow on shady north facing slopes down low, where there is a ton of snow this spring. Temperatures will continue to rise in the mountains significantly in the next few days.
The 8400' Tony Grove Snotel reports 30° F and a good deal of settlement in the past couple days, with now 154" of total snow. The wind diminished a bit this morning at the 9700' CSI Logan Peak weather station, and is blowing from the west 13 mph.
Here is the NWS point forecast (36 hrs) for Logan Canyon:
