Mild, dry and fairly calm conditions this morning gave way to stronger winds and rain and sleet later. Outlook is colder with strong to gale force variable Southerly winds with frequent snow showers. The old snowpack where exposed will be firm and icy with some serious run out potentials in the event of an uncontrolled slip or fall.  Overall quantities of new snow are not great but areas of fresh windslab will be weakly bonded to underlying re-frozen old snow. Fresh cornices will be weakly bonded.
