Forecast for the Salt Lake Area Mountains
Issued by Mark Staples for Monday, January 7, 2019 - 7:27am
Today the avalanche danger is HIGH on mid and upper elevation slopes. At lower elevations the danger is CONSIDERABLE. With continued snowfall and strong south winds, more avalanches are likely today. Most avalanches will occur in areas with wind drifted snow. Some may occur in the new snow on slopes not affected by the wind. Additionally some slides could break on buried persistent weak layers especially on slopes with a heavy load of wind drifted snow.
