    First light September 8, 2014. Awesome day, it did eventually rain, 1.2 mm fell at Nester's Stn.

    At around 17:00 Hours the clouds became angry and it did rain for a while.

    Just on the edge of the nasty clouds, image taken at the same time as the rain event.

    Sunrise Tuesday September 9, 2014; unsettled conditions.

    Tantalus Range cloudy Tuesday morning.

    Very calm Howe Sound Wednesday morning.

    Inflow Wednesday afternoon in Squamish, felt like 20 knots.


    Not many clouds in the sky Wednesday morning, sunrise; September 10, 2014.

    Sunrise Thursday morning, September 11, 2014. Cooler temperatures in the alpine, -1 at 2180 M.

   Alpen glow at sunset Thursday evening. Smoke to the North! Fire in Felix Creek!

2180 meters        +6, Winds were 15-25 KPH from the WNW

For the forecast, high pressure aloft will maintain a dry and slow warming pattern into early next week. Some cloud in the area this am but it should dissipate later this morning. We have been experiencing incredibly nice weather in the Pacific Northwest this summer. Models are in disagreement to a change possibly coming on Wednesday, but as of now it looks like clouds could move in as soon as Tuesday evening early Wednesday morning. More on that subject Monday.


    High pressure aloft maintains its dominance of the weather pattern.
