This morning, temperatures below 8000 ft are in the mid to upper 30s F. Above that elevation, temperatures are at or just under freezing. At ridgelines near 9000 feet, air temperatures range from 23 to 28 degrees F. Winds this morning are blowing from the north 4-11 mph with gusts of 20 mph. Yesterday's weather delivered rain and snow to the mountains near SLC while unfortunately, the mountains near Ogden did not get any new snow. The one exception on the southern end of the zone is Farmington Canyon which received 0.6 inches of water which translates to about 5 inches of snow at upper elevations.
Today, skies will clear and clouds will return this evening. Temperatures today should warm into the 40s F and close to 30 deg F at the upper elevations. Winds will continue from the north but should be light. Tomorrow maybe an inch of two of snow should fall and winds will blow from the southwest and west.
Snow conditions: The snow is refrozen only at the upper elevations while it is likely wet and unsupportable in the mid and low elevations. Unsupportable means that if you step out of your skis or board or step off a snowmobile, you'll sink to your knees or waist.
No avalanches have been reported from the Ogden area mountains recently, but I bet there have been some wet loose avalanches during the recent record heat.
