February 2, 2014

    Pre Sun Sky Saturday February 1, 2014.

    Clouds and blue skies were a welcome site for the Peak to Valley Race.

    The stratus nimbus produced very light flurries in the afternoon.

    They were floating last weekend!

    The sun felt very nice in the cool moist air at 2180 meters yesterday.

Weather Observations for February 2, 2014; taken at 06:00 hrs.

2240 Meters      -14, Winds were 5-15 KPH from the E
2180 Meters      -14, Winds were 20-25 KPH from the ESE
1860 Meters      -13, Winds were 0-10 KPH from the ESE
1835 Meters      -14, Winds were 5-10 KPH from the N

1550 Meters      -10, No new snow, Base 93 cm
  660 Meters      -10, Valley Temp

For the forecast the upper trough will move through with some cloud and clearing later this am. The ridge of high pressure will strengthen over BC tonight bringing cool dry conditions until at least Friday.  Models are beginning to lean towards some precipitation for Friday night into Saturday. Still some time for that to change but for now there is hope at the end of the forecast period.

    Lets hope this model will remain valid for Saturday, February 9, 2014.

    Holly Walker coming out of the start.

    It was a fast hard course. The fastest time went to Scott Hume at 4:55:50

   More stratus cloud layers, at least they were emitting a few light flurries.
