May 23, 2015

    Very cloudy early Friday May 22, 2015.

    High overcast over the valley early Friday morning.

    Convective cloud development by mid morning.

    Cumulus nimbus developed later in the day with some isolated showers.

    Dark clouds around 20:00 Hours.

    Breaks to the Southwest just before sunset.

Weather Observations for May 23, 2015: taken at 05:00 Hours.

2180 meters      +6, Winds were 0-10 KPH from the NNW
1835 meters      +7, Winds were 0-5 KPH from the NNE
1650 meters      +6, No new snow, Base 75 cm, relative humidity is 95%
  660 meters    +12, Valley Temp, Max Temp Yesterday was +25.7, 0.5 mm recorded on Friday.

    As of 06:00 Hours we have high overcast, a stratus layer and unlimited visibility.

For the forecast, high pressure offshore will maintain moderate to strong onshore flow into next week. The weak low pressure to the Southeast will continue to bring a chance of showers into the mountains. The pattern will be slightly different than the past week where it will likely be cloudier in the mornings breaking in the afternoons with the chance of rain later in the day into the night time hours. The marine stratus layer has moved onshore and will likely lift later this morning with day time heating.

    Still significant moisture to our South and East.

    Will be mostly cloudy today.

    High pressure North and West low Southeast.

    It was certainly a mostly cloudy day with some noise sunny breaks over the valley.

    Serious stratus layer over the ocean.
