Skies are partly-becoming-mostly cloudy with temps in the mid-20s. Yesterday's strong southwest winds died overnight and are now light from the west. Not to worry, they'll reignite overnight with another weak storm system moving through. The Ogden mountains picked up a trace yesterday, but that's more than most places. We'll cross our fingers for a touch more snowfall overnight. A trace to two inches is likely. Riding conditions are best described as variable right now. Snow depths are 2-3' in the mid and upper elevations with about a foot at the trailheads.
We'll see a trace to two overnight into tomorrow. Winds will again be the spoiler, with the west-northwesterlies expected to increase to 35-40mph along the ridgelines. Clearing for later Wednesday into Thursday with another weak system on Friday. I know that the holidays are upon us but it's never too late to try to be good. Storms may arrive around Christmas.
Three large natural cornice fall were noted along the Ogden skyline on Sunday and mostly attributed to the incessant winds and infernal heat. As always, be aware of traveling above and beneath these yawning whales littered along the ridgelines. No other recent reports of avalanche activity.
