2180 meters          +6, Winds were 20-30 KPH from the S
1835 meters          +8, Winds were 10-30 KPH from the S

    As of 06:00 Hrs we have scattered clouds and unlimited visibility.

For the forecast, an upper level trough will pass by our area, unsettled this morning, increase in clouds later this morning in a Southwesterly flow. The low should bring slightly cooler temperatures but little or no precipitation is expected. Possible for some light isolated rain showers later today. The flow will slowly shift to a more Northerly flow tomorrow bringing unsettled conditions with a mix of sun and cloud. A ridge of high pressure will form for Wednesday in the interior of BC bringing sunny conditions back to our zone. The weather pattern will have offshore flow into the weekend, so temperatures should slowly increase as the weekend approaches. Enjoy the amazing weather we have been experiencing, eventually we will transition into a fall weather pattern, the question is when?!!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

Full moon is today, some refer to it as the Hunter's Moon.
It rises around sunset and sets around sunrise, the only night 
in the month when the Moon is in the sky all night long.

    Satellite image from Sunday afternoon. Marine stratus layer looks nasty along the coast.

    Big picture, trough is sliding down the coast into our zone but will likely just be cloudy skies.

    This would be an awesome place for some hiking.

    Still lots of glacial melt, with high temperatures even during the evenings.

    Waterfalls are certainly still flowing with the present melt.
