August 30, 2013

Sun is trying to break out but there is still a lot of cloud in the area. Image from this am.

The high over Oregon and Washington, with the high in the Pacific should bring nice conditions for Saturday and Sunday. The low moving in from the Gulf of Alaska is fairly large.

Lightning strikes from last night (X), huge amount of hits thanks to the warm air moving up from the Hawaiian Islands.

At 1835 meters the temperature was + 5, winds were 10-25 KPH from the S.  In the valley it was + 13. The precipitation gauge at Nesters recorded 17.9 mm of rain for August 29th and 17.5 mm of rain for August 28th. Data from the Horstman Hut and Alpine shop on Blackcomb has not been obtainable since the thunderstorm on July 30 th. Last night the thunderstorm which struck just after midnight has disrupted the data coming from the Catskinner weather plot, the peak of Whistler and the Pig alley weather plot. Not sure when all stations will be back on line?? Did anyone get pictures of the lightning strikes around 12:15 this morning? There was one that certainly hit Whistler Blackcomb!

For the forecast an upper and surface high will slowly build into the area today bringing us mostly sunny skies and warmer conditions until Sunday evening when another low will stall over our area bringing mostly cloudy skies with unsettled weather into mid week. Still the chance of light rain showers through the transition period this morning. Showers are expected Sunday evening, Monday and a slight chance on Tuesday. Wednesday there may be some improvement with more sun than clouds.
