Waterton Lakes National Park Avalanche Forecast
Jan 3rd, 2012 4:00PM
Lots of discrepancy in weather forecasts, however a very warm and windy Wednesday will most likely be followed by cooler conditions and another shot of snow Thursday. Forecasts amounts are variable, but up to 15cms is possible. LP snowpack 93cms.
Windslabs of 40cms or thicker may be found on north and east facing terrain, and other lee features which may be crossloaded by the continuing westerly winds. Very warm temperatures Tuesday helped settle in these slabs, but triggering is possible.
Aspects:North, North East, East, South East.
Some weather forecasts are predicting a very warm Wednesday, with freezing levels rising to 2000m or higher. Warm and sunny southerly aspects may develop daytime surface instabilities resulting in moist loose or slab avalanches during the day.
Aspects:North, North East, East.
