Forecast for the Salt Lake Area Mountains
Issued by Drew Hardesty for Wednesday, December 12, 2018 - 5:48am
It'll be a day of rising avalanche danger. Many areas will start off with a LOW danger this morning. By late morning, the danger will trend toward MODERATE for new and developing wind drifts and new snow avalanches. Wind drifts will be more prominent on steep north to east to southeast facing slopes but also cross-loaded into gullies and couloirs...as well as other aspects. A pockety but severe MODERATE danger exists for human triggered avalanches 2-4' deep into the old snow on westerly to northerly to easterly facing slopes at the mid and upper elevations. Continue to travel with extra caution.
