September 26, 2014

    Two climbers killed after avalanche on Shisha Pangma, 14 Th highest peak in the world! Web Pic


    Sunrise was officially at 06:59 on Tuesday September 23, 2014. Unsettled with mostly clear skies.


    Tuesday morning at Alta Lake. September 23, 2014.

    Rain began to fall on Tuesday afternoon, the dry ground did not absorb it very well.


    Very wet Wednesday morning.


    By 12:00 Hrs on Wednesday we had unsettled conditions with sun in the valley. Wet Wed night.

    Multi Layer clouds Thursday morning, a few showers but a relatively nice day. Sunrise was 07:02.



    This was last year on September 26, 2013. Certainly not looking like this right now. Patience!!



Weather observations for September 26, 2014; taken at 06:00 Hours.

2240 meters        +1, Winds were 5-10 KPH form the S
1860 meters        +2, Winds were 10-15 KPH from the E
1550 meters        +5, Relative Humidity 97%
  660 meters        +9, Valley Temperature, Max Temp Yest was +14.8, 1.7 mm of Precip Yest

From Monday until 24:00 hrs last night 21.1 mm of precip was recorded at the Nesters Weather Stn. The atmospheric river event flowed to the south, for the most part missed us!!

    As of 06:30 hours we have overcast skies with limited visibility, September 26, 2014.

For the forecast, the surface trough from Thursday stalled and will bring light rain showers to the area today. This frontal band in a strong South\Southwesterly flow will shift east later today with unsettled conditions developing by the evening. Saturday morning looks cloudy but the ridge will slowly build and we should see some clearing later in the day. Sunday is looking like a nice sunny day, enjoy, as a cooler Northwest flow aloft will bring showery weather to the area into the middle of next week. A weak cold front is scheduled to move on shore for Monday. Looks like we may see some negative temperatures in the high alpine on Monday, likely some snow will fall above 2000 meters. There are some inconsistencies in the models but the ECMWF is on the side of wetter conditions than the NAM and GFS from Monday into Wednesday. Will update on Monday.


    Slow moving trough will bring showery weather for most of the day.

     High pressure should dissipate clouds by Saturday afternoon, with sunny skies by Sunday.
