Yesterday was a fairly non eventful day in terms of snow conditions changing, being overcast at a relatively stable temperature of 2 deg C for most of the day.

Today the sky is still overcast with a current temperature of -4 deg C and the forecast is fro snow to roll in from mid day. It should be a reasonably light snowfall today but slowly increasing in intensity from early tomorrow morning. The snow is expected to continue until late Saturday, possibly Sunday morning.

Looking at the weather charts, it looks like the winds will be strong from tomorrow morning for at least 2 days, then calming down again in time for the weekend.


Backcountry
Clear skies throughout the night may have created a hoar frost in the upper mountains, so any new snow on top of thi layer will have to watched carefully. In general, warmer temperatures are allowing the snow to settle and the surfaces between weak layers to create better bonds. Still beware of steep South facing terrain, especially in the Alpine.

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