Dry light snow, wish I was there.

For the forecast, a warm front should affect our zone today with cloudy skies and light snowfall beginning later this am. The upper ridge will finally begin to give us unsettled weather associated with an offshore flow for Tuesday. This pattern should continue into Wednesday with a mix of sun and cloud. Flurries are also possible. A weak low may bring cloudy skies for Thursday prior to the upper ridge rebuilding with sunny skies for the weekend. Models are in total disagreement past the weekend so more on that later. Guesstimates of today 3-4cm.

    Model for today showing light snow for later in am.

    Drying up for tomorrow.

Hi Wayne, 

Here are some photos of the Duffey we took on Friday at Chief Pascal. 
Lots of loud woomfing at, and above treeline, so stayed in the trees. 

Holly Walker and Dan Cudlip in the photos.
