November 3, 2013

November 3, 2013, clouds from the North moving in, temperature -12 at 1835 meters.

Low pressure system moved in early Friday November 1 St.

The low moved through faster than forecasted on Saturday.

Looks like 20-30 cm of new snow in the upper elevations?

Early Saturday morning!

At 2180 meters the recorded temperature was -11. At 1860 meters the temperature was -10, winds were 5-10 KPH from the NNE. At 1550 meters the temperature was -7. In the valley the temperature was -4. Observations taken at 07:00 hrs this Third day of November 2013.

For the forecast a Northerly flow associated with a short ridge of high pressure will bring clouds and mostly sunny periods for today, clouds are moving in from the North after a stellar night. A weak front will move through sometime tomorrow bringing unsettled conditions before a drier Tuesday.  The pattern continues with a series of fronts and dry periods for the week. The front forecasted to arrive on Wednesday night appears to be the juiciest with 10-15 cm of snow into Thursday. Another drier day on Friday with a front expected to arrive on Saturday. As always the models can change as we saw on Saturday with the front moving through much faster than forecasted. Freezing levels are to remain at seasonal values, good for snow making! 25 mm of rain recorded at Nester's weather plot Friday evening and Saturday.
