Weather & Snow Characteristics
Please provide details to help us determine the weather and snowpack during the time this observation took place.

-12C at 11:00 in the parking lot, but it warmed up a lot on the sunny side.
Most notable was that the wind down around the road was light from the *South* while we know from the Seattle Ridge weather station that it was blowing 15-30mph from the North there.


At road elevations: 15-50cm snow depth, all cold and dry.
