The avalanche danger is HIGH on NW-N-NE-E-SE aspects and CONSIDERABLE on S-SW-W aspects steeper than 30 degrees at all elevations due to a combination of heavy snow and rain, high winds, and uncertainty surrounding the weak layer of buried surface hoar. Widespread, large natural and human-triggered avalanches are likely to continue today. Travel in or near avalanche terrain including low elevation road cuts and other steep hillsides is not recommended.

The avalanche danger will remain at EXTREME on NW-N-NE-E-SE aspects and HIGH on S-SW-W aspects steeper than 30 degrees at all elevations due to a combination of heavy snow and rain, high winds, and a very widespread weak layer of buried surface hoar. Widespread large natural and human-triggered avalanches are certain to continue today. Travel in or near avalanche terrain including low elevation road cuts and other steep hillsides is not recommended.

Avalanche danger is LOW for the vast majority of all elevations and aspects. Very isolated pockets of MODERATE danger may exist on N-NE-E aspects, 37 degrees and steeper due to developing deep slab concerns.

A continual increase in avalanche danger is expected to occur now through midnight tonight. This morning, avalanche danger both above and below treeline will rise to MODERATE danger in open areas 35 degrees and steeper. This afternoon, avalanche danger is expected to further increase to CONSIDERABLE danger near and above treeline on NW-N-NE-E-SE aspects 35 degrees and steeper. Late this afternoon and evening, areas of locally higher avalanche danger may exist if the upper end of forecast snowfall amounts are met or exceeded.

LOW avalanche danger exists in most areas this morning. Pockets of MODERATE avalanche danger will quickly develop on sun-exposed E-SE-S-SW-W aspects steeper than 37 degrees at all elevations due to daytime warming.
