The clouds didn't eventuate yesterday which meant an entire day of sun and blue skies with warm temperatures.

This morning is another blue sky morning with the sun forecast to shine until dusk. Much of the snow from the past 6 days is settling fast because of the warm temperatures with snow on South faces becoming heavy.

It looks like Minakami is in for some snow tonight and possibly tomorrow, with the forecast for the weekend now changed to only cloud on Saturday, but still snow expected on Sunday.


Backcountry Advisory
The very warm temperatures of yesterday are causing the new snow to settle, almost too fast. This could cause large natural avalanches on slopes exposed to the sun (mostly South), especially with another warm day expected today. Riding in exposed alpine terrain or avalanche tracks should be avoided.

Avalanche Hazard:
Alpine: Considerable
Tree Line: Moderate
Below Tree line: Moderate
