Logan Avalanche Advisory

Forecaster: Toby Weed


We hope you can join us for the 4th annual Utah Snow and Avalanche Workshop at the Depot in Salt Lake City from 1 to 5 pm on Saturday, November 5.


Looks like we picked up an inch or two at upper elevations overnight, and a couple more should accumulate during the day today as a moist cold front sags over the area... Temperatures dropped below freezing in the mountains early this morning, and I'm reading 28 degrees at the 8400' Tony Grove Snotel and 17 at the CSI weather station atop Logan Peak at 9700'.

You'll find very shallow October snow on north facing slopes above around 8500', but coverage is quite thin and you should expect to also find rocks. I expect a couple more inches today and another more promising storm should impact our area beginning on around Friday....


We're back in the office and we'll start issuing regular advisories when the snow starts to pile up.......
