Looking towards Blackcomb this Am, dusting of fresh snow. Should see some sunny breaks this morning.

Yesterday morning at 1850 meters.

At 2240 meters the temperature was -2, winds were calm. At 1550 meters the temperature was +4, no new snow and the base is now at 125 cm. In the valley it was +9. Observations taken at 08:00 Hrs this Am. Temperatures in the alpine should rise fairly quickly once the sun comes out.

For the forecast we will see drier conditions today with the weak upper ridge trying to establish itself, unsettled conditions today with a mix of cloud, sunny periods, and the possibility of rain showers. Monday is looking drier but still unsettled. A broad upper trough will dominate the forecast area for the remainder of the week. A wet low will bring precipitation into the area Monday night into Tuesday. Several bands of moderate to heavy precipitation can be expected Wednesday evening, lightening up for Thursday. Freezing levels will have a high of 2600 meters and a low of 1800 meters in the next few days. Guesstimates Today trace-1mm, Monday trace-1 mm, Tuesday 15-20 mm, Wednesday 2-4 mm during the day, 8-12 mm Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.
