TREND: IMPROVING / ONGOING / DETERIORATING
Temperatures have fallen overnight and there was a large frost this morning. Winds have shifted from SE to SW and have increased. This is the beginning for the new front that will drop an estimated 30cm of precipitation over the weekend starting Friday.
The past weeks warmer temps and softening top section of the snow pack will now have a nice freeze crust on it. The new snow falling from Friday will be landing on this melt / freeze layer and may not bond very well. We will keep our eyes on this and report in with field obs moving forward
There's some big winds and then more snow, following tomorrows mini blizzard that will see the accumulation for 48hrs hit 30cm. Yellow flags... Temps are low, the freezing level is low thanks to a big bump from the south. Weekend snow play will be fun with more new snow landing. As per normal the wind will play a huge role in where the decent skiing / boarding will take place so pick you lee slopes and have fun.
