May 15, 2015

    Very cloudy in the valley Thursday May 14, 2015.

    Cloud layer went from the valley floor to well above the local peaks.

    Was not as thick over Mount Currie yesterday morning.

    That changed as the day progressed and convective clouds became darker.

    Whistler around 17:00 hours Thursday afternoon. Low level clouds lifted around noon.

    Isolated rain showers later in the day.

    Sunset was officially at 20:49 Thursday evening.

For the forecast, a weak upper level trough will continue to bring unsettled conditions to the area into the weekend. In our zone it will be cloudier this am with some sunny breaks later in the day, still a chance of some showers later in the day as well. As of now it may be cloudier Sunday. Freezing levels will remain above the local peaks. The pattern continues into next week with unsettled conditions and warmer temperatures.

    Highs to the North--Lows to the South. Blocking high is certainly keeping us unsettled.
