Peak cam is working again, cloud on top of Whistler should dissipate soon.

Looking at the Peak of Whistler September 25, 2013.

Image from September 24, 2013; snow looks great, seasonable temperatures expected this weekend.

Upper ridge will dominate our area until Friday.




At 2180 meters the temperature was -3.5. At 1860 meters the temperature was -2, winds were 30-44 KPH from the N. At 1550 meters the temperature was + 2. In the valley the temperature was +1. At the Nesters's weather station 17.2 mm of precipitation was recorded since September 22,2013.
Observations taken at 08:00 am September 25, 2013.


For the forecast a dry Northerly flow associated with an upper ridge will bring dry and sunnier weather to our area until Friday.  A Southwest flow aloft associated with a large upper low coming from the Gulf of Alaska will be the next large moist system to affect our zone this coming weekend. Heavy precipitation is forecasted as a series of fronts pass through our area into early next week. Freezing levels will be hard to gauge but it appears snow may fall in the upper elevations.
