Saturday Morning, first snow in the valley! The temperature at 2260 meters on Sunday morning        was - 10 as of 06:00 Hrs.

A significant change in the flow pattern happened on Friday night, the deepening upper level trough pushed south from the Gulf of Alaska giving us cooler temperatures and a stronger jet stream.

This trough will keep moving southward in the next couple of days.
