TREND: IMPROVING / ONGOING / DETERIORATING
The storm has passed and brought with it a warming event on Sunday 8th July.
This has created a very firm top in not sun affected areas. In sun affected areas the melt freeze cycle has started and will continue while under the influence of the high pressure.
In the lee of N/NW snow deposits from the storm are around 30-50 cm. totalling a snow depth of around 130 cm. This new snow sits on the crust of the pre frontal rain event. RP 15@35cm
OUTLOOK: High pressure , good visibility and the melt freeze will dictate conditions for the near future!
In the event that this front produces significant snowfall (over 25cm 'on the stakes'), and as mentioned above. Given the strong winds and precip and funky surface conditions on what will become the new bed surface on aspects likely to become wind loaded, there is a moderate avalanche warning forecast.
The schedule for stability assessment reports will be Mondays. Locations are on or above tree-line and generally South East aspect, although this is conditions dependent.
