Gothic weather update

CBACCBAC Observations

Date of Observation: 01/17/2023
Name: Billy Barr

Zone: Southeast Mountains
Route Description: Gothic townsite observations.

Observed avalanche activity: No
Weather: Only light snow Monday, 2″, with a mid day pause, though solid clouds. Then steady moderately heavy snowfall all night with 11″ new but still a very light density 0.65″ so the 24 hour total is 13″ new with 0.77″ of water. Snowpack is at winter’s deepest of 71″. Wind is calm to light from the SW, no visibility and the temperature does not move, holding at 18F since midnight. Currently snowing very lightly. This recent snow is light on top of dense snow but there has been too much of it to stabilize quickly so at the least surface slides are likely. I wish one of them was my roof. billy
