Winds could gust as high as 60 mph. The chance of precipitation is 60%. New snow accumulation of less than one inch is possible.

HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK – Periods of heavy, wind-driven snow will impact the Continental Divide tonight into Tuesday evening. For lower elevations of the upper Arkansas River Valley, the Sangre de Cristo, and Wet Mountains, 5 to 10 inches are likely, with locally higher amounts possible.

High wind watch effective Tuesday 5 am until Tuesday 5 pm.

Winds gusting more than 80 mph will produce widespread blowing snow over the mountains with extremely hazardous travel conditions and poor visibility. Reminder: With the high winds there is always a chance for power outages. If you see downed power lines, please assume they are live. Back away and call 911.

AVALANCHE REPORT

We are in a period where high-consequence human-triggered slides are still possible. Most avalanches have occurred in above-treeline terrain where recent winds have drifted snow onto a weak layer near the surface. These are near-surface facets, facet/crust combinations, or surface hoars. Skiers/Riders are commonly triggering avalanches on slopes that show recent signs of winds drifting snow, such as just below ridges, large smooth pillows of snow along gully walls, or steep rollovers. To avoid these slopes, you can find safer travel options on wind-sheltered and lower-angle areas without steep slopes above.

On Saturday, a semi-truck rollover near mile marker 63 on CO 69 brought the highway down to one lane. No one was seriously injured. The truckload was 46,000 pounds of cheese. The CCSO and WMFPD distributed free cheese to those who wanted it.

Avalanche Report 

You are most likely to trigger a large and dangerous avalanche where you find shallow areas of the snowpack on steep connected terrain at upper elevations. Common trigger points include rock outcroppings, steep rollovers, and below ridges and cliff bands. Avalanches on previously drifted slopes can step down to deeper weak layers, triggering a larger and more dangerous slide. Use caution on steeper slopes where the snow surface transitions from soft to stiff or in places with a rounded or wave-like appearance.

You can find safer riding options below treeline or on low-angled, wind-sheltered slopes without steep overhead hazards.

TOMORROW – Mostly sunny, with a high near 50º. Breezy, with a west southwest wind 10 to 20 mph.

AVALANCHE REPORT

Wind-loaded slopes at upper elevations are the most problematic. Your chance to trigger a large and dangerous avalanche increases where the snowpack is shallower, on steep rollovers, and below ridges and cliffs. Avalanches on previously drifted slopes have the best potential to step down to deeper weak layers and take the entire snowpack with it. Use caution on steeper slopes where the snow surface transitions from soft to stiff, or in places with a rounded or wave-like appearance.

You can find safer riding options below treeline, or on low-angled, wind-sheltered slopes without steep overhead hazard.

TOMORROW – Mostly sunny, with a high near 40º. West northwest wind around 5 mph.

AVALANCHE REPORT

For the Northern San Juan and Sangre de Cristo’s Mountains, the focus returns to triggering a large and dangerous Persistent Slab avalanche that breaks in the middle or bottom of the snowpack. According to reports, you are unlikely to observe signs of instability before triggering avalanches. The snowpack will continue to get more stubborn with time, but the Persistent Slab avalanche structure is here to stay. As we move toward a quieter snowpack, continue to assess the areas where you plan to travel and identify slopes and features you want to avoid. Stick to the deepest areas and identify shallow locations, which can be challenging just by looking at a white surface.

MAKE SAFETY YOUR PRIORITY: Presidents Week DUI enforcement has begun. Saturation patrols across the state will remove impaired drivers from roads and encourage Coloradans to enjoy the holiday weekend responsibly.
