The Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center maintains the most comprehensive real-time mountain weather data network in the US. It includes snowpack, wind, temperature and precipitation telemetry data as well as weather forecasts for the Northwest Cascades and Olympic mountains from fall through spring. Telemetry data is sampled hourly and the links below reflect data collected in the past 24 hours. It is helpful to compare precipitation to temperature at a given elevation to reveal rain vs. snow accumulation. For those Ski Areas with telemetry our area pages usually include the current temperatue and precipitation graph based on this data. Please click on an area of interest, or mouse over link to load graphic plot of past 24 hours.
