The most recent Atmospheric River event moved out of the region Wednesday (2/22). The snowpack continues to settle in sheltered locations, with snow sensors showing significant settlement over the past 48 hours. Moderate SW to W winds throughout most of the week transported snow onto Leeward aspects (NW-N-NE-E-SE-S), primarily at the upper mid to upper elevations. Saturday, winds veered to the North resulting in significant snow transport (snow banners) over high peaks from Whitney to Bishop with reports of natural Wind Slab avalanche activity, which died down through the day. Today (Sunday), moderate SW winds are forecasted to develop mid-day with gusts up to 60mph during the day, increasing to 80mph by this evening, forming isolated Wind Slabs on leeward slopes (NW-N-NE-E-SE). As this week progressed, Storm Slab instability declined as the snowpack settled and strengthened. There is a weak strom system forecasted to move into the region Sunday night with up to 3” new low density snow possible over the higher elevations, which is insufficient to produce dangerous Storm Slab instability. However, Southwesterly winds of 30 – 45 mph winds forecasted for Sunday will redistribute the low-density snow onto Leeward slopes, forming new sensitive Wind Slabs on NW-N-NE-E-SE aspects.
