Avalanche Advisory: Thursday - Apr 19, 2018

Bottom Line:

Thursday – Cloud skies and cool temperatures today will limit Loose Wet activity to primarily Friday when skies clear and temperatures quickly rebound into the 40’s and 50’s. Recently formed Wind Slabs (4/16) have generally settled and strengthen and are primarily limited to small isolated pockets in steep and complex terrain. Northerly winds are forecasted to increase overnight into Friday but the lack of abundant transportable snow will limit new Wind Slabs to isolated areas where there is a large upwind fetch.  Natural avalanches are unlikely, small isolated triggered releases possible in steep or complex terrain.
