June 8, 2013

Recent Avalanche in the Toba Inlet Area. Thanks to Kevin Fogolin for submitting these impressive photos.

Thought you would be interested in seeing these photos of a deep slab
release up in the Toba area this week. Interestingly  we saw no activity of
this type in the area during the early May heat wave which was then followed
by a major rain event to mountain top. 

At 2240 meters the temperature was 0, winds were 20-35 KPH from the SSE. At 1550 meters the temperature was +6.5. In the valley it was +11. Observations taken at 09:00 Hrs this AM.

For the forecast we are experiencing a moist westerly flow aloft, there is a weak ridge building to the south but unsure if it will push into our zone later today. An upper level low is establishing itself with a moist North Westerly flow aloft for the next few days. Unsettled conditions will prevail for the next 6 days with rain showers expected every day.
