One of the many arms of the Pemberton Ice Cap. The snow coming in the next week will certainly change the look of this very melted glacier. Temperature at 2260 meters this morning was -2. There is a dusting on the tallest peaks. There was certainly a shift of the jet stream resulting in a current of subtropical warm air entering our area over the week end. Hopefully we will get back to a seasonal pattern and the snow will come. Temperatures in the upper elevations should remain at - values for the week.
