Avalanche Advisory for Monday, March 27, 2017

Today, wind slab will be stressed by additional precipitation and will possibly become saturated, creating wet slab and wet loose avalanche problems. The hazard will increase through the day as the amount of precipitation and temperature increases. This avalanche problem is notorious for its unpredictability and today will be no exception. Looking at the amount of water arriving today, it will likely be at most half an inch by midnight. This is not a huge amount of liquid and combined with the ambient air temperature, may not be enough to overwhelm the cohesiveness of the slab. The areas of greatest concern today are rated Considerable due to the larger possible size of an avalanche as well as the steepness of the slope. Moderate rated areas could have similar but smaller avalanches that could be equally dangerous depending on the terrain.
