    SNOWING TO THE VALLEY--Friday April 24, 2015.

    Lower Olympic Run yesterday morning.

    Valley view yesterday morning.

    At around 12:00 yesterday the visibility was fairly good at 1835 meters.

    A little more challenging at 2180 meters.

    Later in the afternoon it did break with some blue patches moving through.

    As of 07:00 Hours this am we have mostly overcast skies with unlimited visibility at 1835 meters.

For the forecast, the low pressure system is slowly moving to the Southeast with a cool and unstable air mass. We can expect unsettled conditions with some isolated showers and a freezing level with a high of 1700 meters today dropping to around 1300 meters tonight. Sunday will also be unsettled with some more cloud coming into the area Sunday evening. It will be a warmer day with the FL rising to 1900 meters then dropping to 1500 meters Sunday night. The cloud will remain for Monday morning then become unsettled in the afternoon with the FL steadily climbing to 2700 metes by Monday evening. The air mass will be moist and we can expect showery weather before a warm front moves onshore for Tuesday with cloudy skies and light to moderate precipitation. Wednesday at this time is looking unsettled as well. The low in the Aleutians and the high pressure to the South will bring spring like weather to the area for the week. Guesstimates: trace to 1 cm above 1650 meters by Sunday morning. The weekend looks fairly dry with some precipitation on Monday and wetter on Tuesday.

Low and High will be battling it out for the next few days.
