February 8, 2014

    February 7, 2014 started off as another beautiful day.

    Dark to the North, but eventually it moved to the West.

    Clouds to the South developed later in the morning but also dissipated by days end.

    Sunset was not very colourful yesterday with the lack of clouds.

    Still the end to a slightly warmer day than Thursday.

The ridge will maintain until Saturday evening with the possibility of some cloud around as systems move down the coast into Washington State. Enjoy the sunshine today as we are about to have a series of fronts move through our area for at least the next 5 days. Freezing levels should remain around the 800-1100 meter level bringing possible amounts from 40-60 centimetres by Friday afternoon. Monday night into Tuesday morning appear to be when the heaviest snowfall will occur. If we are lucky we could recieve 30-40 cm by Tuesday night. Will have better estimates as we get closer. Light-moderate snow will begin on Sunday evening, with 4-8 cm by Monday morning.

    Certainly a change from yesterday, clouds are finally occupying a majority of the space. Feb 7.

    Even the big picture is indicating significant weather on its way.
