Impacts Expected From Solar Flares

solarstorm

Broadcasting and electricity could get a little “jiggy” today and tomorrow after a strong solar flare erupted Sunday evening and continues to affect the earth.  According to the National Weather Service Space Weather Prediction Center, the impacts of the solar storm are likely to be minimal, but could pose an impact to power grids, where voltage corrections may be required and false alarms triggered on some protective devices.  Satellite radio signals could also be briefly interrupted.  The weather service also says high-latitude sky watchers could be treated to some displays of the aurora borealis.

Teton Pass Reopens

Teton Pass Opens

Forty hours after it closed on Thursday, Teton Pass has been reopened after pretty-much round-the-clock work by highway crews.  Altogether, a Wyoming Department of Highways spokesman says there were 12 major snow slides over two days, and he estimates there were another 20 minor slides.  While crews have conducted considerable avalanche control, the snow on slopes above the road is still unstable.  There are concerns that slides could be easily set off by skiers who may enter the area.  The avalanche danger in the region continues to be rated “high” and forest and weather officials are discouraging any travel in avalanche-prone areas by back-country travelers.  This includes, but is not limited to the Teton Pass area.

NOAA Issues Avalanche Warning

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Friday night issued an avalanche warning for the western mountains of Wyoming effective until midnight Sunday. This warning includes the Teton, Gros Ventre, Snake River, Salt River and Wyoming Ranges as well as the west slope of the Wind River Range and the Togwotee Pass area. Forecasters say heavy snow and strong winds have created very dangerous avalanche conditions where medium to large natural avalanches are likely, and in fact have been already impacting the area’s roadways. The Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center says over the past seven days, there have been 135 avalanches in the area.  Travel in avalanche prone areas is to be avoided.  Weather officials and urge all outdoor recreationists – regardless of their ability – to heed the warning.

Teton Pass Will Not Reopen

road-closed

Teton Pass remains closed.  Efforts to clear multiple avalanches continued through the day, but crews only made it to the summit while the west side remains blocked tonight. Crews hope to try again Saturday to reopen the highway.  However, as much as a foot of additional snow is forecast for the area of the pass on Friday night, bringing with it the possibility of more instability to the slides that already have been cleared, as well as adding to those areas that have not.

Teton Pass Closes Again

Teton Pass Closed

The Wyoming Department of Transportation closed Teton Pass Thursday night at 9:15 pm due to deteriorating weather and road conditions.  Crews will again conduct avalanche control measures overnight.  There is no estimate of when the pass will be reopened.

  • A lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
