The Utah Avalanche Center has issued a high avalanche warning for the mountains of norther and central Utah, including the Bear River Range, the Western Uintas, the Wasatch Range, the Manti-Skyline plateau, and the mountains of southeast Idaho. 

The center says that natural and human triggered avalanches are now occurring on many steep slopes at the mid and upper elevations. Avalanches may be triggered by the flats below, and for this reason, the center recommends people to avoid being on or beneath steep mountain slopes.

This warming will last for several days.
