Forecaster: Toby Weed


The Friends of the Utah Avalanche Center in Logan presents the 5th annual Pray For Snow benefit and party at 6:30 on Friday November 21st at the Bullen Center in downtown Logan.


Danger by aspect and elevation on slopes approaching 35° or steeper.

Danger Rose Tutorial
There is a LOW danger and avalanches are unlikely on most slopes. Isolated wet avalanches are possible on steep sunny slopes with saturated snow.


The rain crust from last week crust deteriorated under warm conditions, and we found unsupportable moist snow on south facing slopes below around 9000'. It's still quite supportable, and slick, on north facing slopes.


      Over the next 24 hours.
You’ll encounter sunny slopes where the snow is sloppy and unsupportable. Although none have been reported, wet avalanches are always possible on steep slopes with saturated snow.


A cold front could bring a few snowflakes to the mountains overnight tomorrow, but it will most likely remain mostly dry. Keep your fingers crossed for possibilities developing next week.
