Here are this morning observations taken at 05:00 hours this November 23, 2013.

2180 meters   -.5,    Wind--anemometer issue
1835 meters   +2.5, Wind 15-25 KPH from the S
1650 meters   +1,    No new snow Base 70 cm
 660  meters   -7,     Valley

For the forecast the high pressure is well established, some residual cloud appears every day from the low but it is certainly maintaining its ground. This am there is more high cloud in the area. Not much change, the high is forecasted to move inland on Monday followed by a very weak front Tuesday into Wednesday bringing mostly cloudy conditions but no precipitation. Another front may arrive for Friday but the models are still waffling on that outcome.

The high cirrus is evident off the coast. Image form Friday afternoon.

Looking at the big picture its hard to imagine the battle between the high and low.

November 22, 2012, much different issues than we are having this year. Snow Please!!

A weak low is forecasted but is expected to be dry when it reaches our area.

Long term forecast is not very encouraging!!
