May 16, 2015

    Early Friday morning May 15, 2015.

    Mostly cloudy.

    A bit of a reflection.

    Later in the afternoon there were some nice breaks.

Weather Observations for May 16, 2015: taken at 06:00 Hours.

2180 meters      +2, Winds were 20-25 KPH from the NNW
1835 meters      +3, Winds were 0-5 KPH from the SW
1650 meters      +3, No new snow, Base 123 cm, relative humidity is 100%
  660 meters      +9, Valley Temp, Max Temp Yesterday was +18.3.
The Pig Alley weather plot has lost over 20 cm of snow pack in the past week. (22 cm). The stratus layer will lift this morning and convective clouds will likely form later this morning.

    As of 06:00 Hours we have a stratus layer with unlimited visibility at 1835 meters.

For the forecast, the large upper level trough to the South and the upper level ridge to the North will continue to bring unsettled weather to our area into next week. Still a chance of some showers in the forecast with the probability of rain events to happen in the evening to night time hours. Moist low level onshore flow will keep Southern BC mostly cloudy this weekend. The air mass will become warmer early next week. Freezing levels will remain well above the local peaks. There are lots of variations in the models so embrace the uncertainty. Still very dry for this time of the year.

    Consistent pattern for some time now.

    Cloudy this morning with some breaks later today.

    Sunday is also looking fairly cloudy.

    Unsettled weather into early next week.

    Still fairly dry considering how much moisture is in the area.
