Forecast for the Salt Lake Area Mountains
Issued by Evelyn Lees for Wednesday, January 9, 2019 - 6:07am
Today the avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE on steep upper elevation slopes for triggering new drifts of wind blown snow, which will be most widespread on the north 1/2 of the compass. There is a MODERATE danger at the mid and low elevations for triggering wind drifts, new snow slides and 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.
