November 27, 2013

Fog was slowly pushing South all day from the Pemberton Valley, Nov 26, 2013.

 Still a large number of crevasses open, many are barely bridged over, use caution on the glaciers.

Improvement by the weekend, but even early next week we are being denied!!?

Weather observations this morning, November 27, 2013 taken at 06:00 Hrs.

2180 meters    -1, no telemetry on winds
1835 meters     0, 5-10 KPH from the E
1650 meters     0, 64 cm Base
  660 meters    -1, Valley Temp

For the forecast, clear skies this am, a weak low pressure will move into our area but it is looking like we may remain dry. Will continue into tomorrow prior to the arrival of a cool moist Northwest flow aloft for Friday into Saturday. A cold front should push through on Sunday with freezing levels finally reaching seasonable values. Looks colder for early next week.! Still early but calling for 1-3 cm on Friday, FL around 1400 m; 2-4 cm on Saturday, FL 1500 m; 8-12 cm Sunday FL 1400m dropping to valley by Monday.

We are on the edge as far as precipitation today, chance of showers later today??

A good showing at the CAC Avalanche presentation last night.

Airbag demo, please note recall of BCAS air bags!!

Had some sunny breaks yesterday, pleasant in the alpine. Skiing on north aspects is better than it looks.
