NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE

TODAY – Sunny, with a high near 49º. South southeast wind around 10 mph becoming southwest in the morning.

TONIGHT – Partly cloudy, with a low around 25º. West southwest wind 10 to 15 mph.

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.

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE

TODAY – Sunny, with a high near 42º . West wind 5 to 10 mph.

TONIGHT – A 40% chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 14º. Southwest wind 5 to 10 mph becoming northeast after midnight.

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. Drivers may see sobriety checkpoints and additional law enforcement on duty dedicated to arresting impaired drivers.
