Forecast for the Ogden Area Mountains
Issued by Mark Staples for Wednesday, January 16, 2019 - 6:44am
Today with new snow and some S and SW winds, the avalanche danger is MODERATE for triggering a shallow slab of wind-drifted snow at upper elevations. There could be a few isolated wind slabs at mid elevations but these are much less likely to exist. At mid and low elevations the danger is LOW where avalanche conditions are generally safe.
Avalanches breaking 1-2 feet deep on a persistent weak layer are unlikely today but remain a concern at mid and upper elevations especially with more snow coming that may start to awaken this layer.
