Time to start thinking about the upcoming winter weather, NWAC will begin issuing forecasts soon; from their post:

As the winter season rapidly approaches, the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center is preparing once again to provide daily avalanche forecasts for the Olympics and Cascades.

These forecasts will become available in late November or December when sufficient snow has accumulated at moderate and lower elevations to create a potential avalanche danger. 

Full statement is here, including some useful general information.
