Avalanche Warning
THE UAC HAS ISSUED AN AVALANCHE WARNING THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 AM MST THURSDAY
FOR THE WASATCH MOUNTAINS SOUTH OF I-80, WESTERN UINTAS, AND MANTI SKYLINE.
THE AVALANCHE DANGER IS HIGH TODAY.
HEAVY SNOW AND STRONG WINDS ARE CREATING WIDESPREAD AREAS OF UNSTABLE SNOW AT MID AND UPPER ELEVATIONS. HUMAN TRIGGERED AND NATURAL AVALANCHES ARE LIKELY. STAY OFF OF AND OUT FROM UNDER SLOPES STEEPER THAN 30 DEGREES. TRAVELING IN AVALANCHE TERRAIN IS NOT RECOMMENDED.
Weather and Snow
Storm snow totals ended up a bit higher than anticipated with about 18 inches of snow stacking since Tuesday morning. I'm anticipating another 2 to 4 inches of snow by Thursday morning. Moderate to strong southwest wind has been drifting snow especially along the ridges. Wind should start to veer to the northwest this morning and remain fairly gusty. Temperatures have dropped to around 10 degrees.
Recent Avalanches
Visibility was poor on Tuesday so I was not able to see any avalanche activity except some dry loose slides along some steep road banks. I would guess that natural slab avalanches were running in the bigger terrain.
