Weather and Snow
Under partly cloudy skies, the mountain temperatures range from 25-32 °F across northern Utah. Winds are light and blowing from the northwest at speeds of 5-15 mph across the upper elevation terrain. For today, we should see increasing clouds this morning before it clears out again later this afternoon. Mountain temperatures will climb into the upper 30's and low 40's °F. Winds will continue to blow from the westerly direction at speeds of 5-15 mph throughout the day.
We do have another refresher storm slated for Monday into Tuesday and we could see roughly 2-5" of new snow.

Avalanche Problem #1
Normal Caution
Overnight temperatures allowed the snow surface to once again freeze solid. As a result, the avalanche danger is LOW, and natural and human-triggered avalanches are unlikely.
Remember, Normal Caution means: That any avalanche type is possible but the most common would be wind slab, loose wet, and loose dry avalanches and they would be expected to be small. Do not approach a Normal Caution avalanche problem as an “anything goes” situation. Continue to keep your guard up and look for any signs of unstable snow.
Don't forget that small avalanches can have devastating consequences given your terrain selection. Always evaluate the snow, terrain, and weather conditions as you travel.
