May 5, 2013

Sunset last night on Georgia Strait.

Looks like it was a great day on the mountain yesterday.

At 2240 meters the temperature was +5, winds were 30-45 KPH from the E. At 1550 meters the temperature was +8, there is now 182 cm of base there. In the valley it was +5. Observations taken at 07:00 Hrs this AM.

For the forecast the high pressure continues to dominate the weather pattern. There has been some cirrus cloud in the area. Today will be warmer than yesterday, tomorrow cooler marine air should lower the temperatures slightly. Potential for a marine layer to enter our area for Wednesday with cloudy weather and the possibility of  rain showers. The week looks to be mostly sunny.
