Forecast for the Provo Area Mountains
Issued by Greg Gagne for Monday, January 21, 2019 - 7:40am
It is a day of INCREASING avalanche hazard, with the danger rising to HIGH on all aspects at the upper elevations, and at least CONSIDERABLE at the mid elevations, as well as low elevations fcing northwest through east. Pretty simple avalanche formula as forecasted moderate to strong northwest winds and heavy snowfall will create sensitive storm snow and wind drifts. Both human-triggered and natural avalanches are likely, especially during any period of high precipitation intensity. The hazard is MODERATE at low elevations facing west, through south and southeast. Be sure to avoid avalanche runout zones as avalanches may begin several thousand feet above you.
