The avalanche danger rating was considerable above 5,000 feet and moderate below, according to a midweek report from the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center. The weekend weather forecast calls for light snow showers until Sunday, when the snow should increase and snow levels drop in the Cascade passes.
