Avalanche danger rated high region-wide

WINTER SPORTS -- Joining the Idaho Panhandle's warning posted on Wednesday, the Washington State Avalanche Center is warning of a high avalanche danger today in the Washington Olympics, Cascades and the Mount Hood area of Oregon.

The center says winds and rains could weaken layers of snow.

The danger should lessen Friday but increase again Saturday with more warming, winds and rain in the forecast, the center says.

The warning covers backcountry terrain and does not apply to ski areas.
