Today will be the warmest day of the week.  Above freezing overnight temperatures and very warm daytime high's raise concern for loose wet avalanches on those sunny, southerly aspects. The recent storm snow has settled out well but surface layers of the snow still remain heavy and wet. Human triggered, loose-wet avalanches are possible.

Overall, we have had a dry winter here on Mount Shasta. A winter storm brought up to two feet of fresh snow to the area this weekend (4/03-4/06). We have 100 inches of snow on the ground at treeline. Keep in mind that California is under a state-wide stay-at-home order. Outdoor recreation is allowed so Bunny Flat Trailhead remains open but in limited capacity.
