    Sunset was at 20:43 on Sunday evening.  We are losing 3 minutes of daylight per day!

    Early Monday morning, August 10, 2015. Looking like a nice day.

Weather Observations for August 10, 2015: taken at 06:00 Hours.

  660 meters      +9, Valley Temp, Max Temp Yesterday was +23.5, 0.5 mm of rain recorded yest.

    As of 07:00 Hours this am we have high cirrus cloud and unlimited visibility.

    Broken cloud in our zone this morning as of 07:00 Hours.

We have been experiencing cooler temperatures (3-5 degrees cooler than seasonal values) and a shift in the atmospheric circulation with the high pressure moving away giving room for troughing in the Eastern Pacific. Even with these changes recorded rain at the Nester's weather station has totalled 10.5 mm so far in August.

For the forecast, the trough over the area on Saturday moved through our zone faster than forecasted last week bringing a fairly nice day to the area on Sunday. The upper low is now well offshore of Vancouver Island but we will see some residual cloud in the area this morning. The high will rebuild with warmer temperatures and we should see sunny skies over the area into Thursday. The forecast is for the low to move further South then migrate back North by Thursday evening with wet conditions into Friday and unsettled weather for Saturday. Only time will tell, more on that in Friday's post.

    Low moved offshore quickly yesterday giving us a fairly nice day. 0.5 mm of rain very early Sun.

    Low is moving South today with some residual cloud but the high is building back into our zone.

    Looking warm and sunny Tuesday.

    Warmer still on Wednesday as the high strengthens.

    Low may starting migrating Northwards by Friday.
