The UAC is sad to report that a resident was killed by a roof avalanche on Monday, April 17th, in the Town of Brighton. A report is available HERE
. Many communities still have a lot of snow on roofs that could produce similar avalanches.
Winter is not going away without a fight! A northwest flow continues to bring cold air and moisture with most snowfall favoring the north slope of the Uintas.
Yesterday, high temperatures kissed 30 degrees briefly before cooling off. 2-4 inches of snow fell mostly on the north slope while the Daniels area stayed dry or got a trace of snow at best.
This morning, temperatures are 15-20 degrees F. Winds picked up around 1 a.m. and are blowing 25 mph gusting to 35 mph from the west-northwest at upper elevations.
Today, according to the National Weather Service, a "plume of moisture with a cold front dropping over the area" this afternoon will bring more snowfall. My best guess is 4-8 inches of snow concentrated on the north slope. Temperatures will rise into the 20s F. Also, winds from the west-northwest will be increasing.
There have been no reported avalanches in the Uintas since last weekend when there were some loose wet avalanches.
