Forecast for the Provo Area Mountains
Issued by Evelyn Lees for Wednesday, January 9, 2019 - 7:02am
Today the avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE on steep mid and upper elevation slopes for triggering new drifts of wind blown snow, which will be most widespread on the north 1/2 of the compass and for triggering new snow slides breaking on the old snow surface. There is also a MODERATE danger for wet loose sluffs, on both southerly and northerly facing slopes.
In isolated locations with a thin snowpack avalanches could break near the ground, mostly likely where they have a new load of wind drifted snow.
