24 hour snow totals are about 6 inches along the Skyline. This brings totals since Tuesday night up to about 18". The wind was mostly from the west overnight and it did increase in speed for a number of hours but didn't get as strong as I thought it might. Temperatures cooled off dramatically and are in the mid teens.
We'll see mostly cloudy skies today with light to moderate west wind and high temperatures in the low to mid 20s. The weather looks unsettled for the next week with numerous chances for snow although none of them will add huge amounts of new snow.
I have not seen any significant avalanche activity in the higher terrain over the last week. However, doing extensive fieldwork and gathering good information has been difficult with poor visibility really limiting travel. It seems to me that all the new snow has been pretty well behaved and I'm anticipating finding mostly stable conditions over the next few days. However, because of all the new snow and not knowing what it's done in many areas dictates that we use caution and treat it as guilty until we can prove otherwise.
