May 2, 2013

Still able to get to the bottom with a short walk.

Looking very smooth over on the Whistler Side.

At 2240 meters the temperature was -1.5, winds were 15-25 KPH from the S. At 1550 meters the temperature was +1.5, no new snow reported there, base of 188 cm. In the valley it was +3. Observations taken at 07:00 Hrs this AM.

For the forecast we can expect cloudy skies for today as a weak front brings cloud into the area with the possibility of a rain shower this afternoon into this evening. . The high pressure ridge will rebuild for the rest of the week into next week with warm temperatures and elevated freezing levels. Should feel like summer for the Weekend. Temperatures in Pemberton could go to +30 by Sunday. Freezing levels will range from 2000 meters today rising to 4000 meters on Sunday then an onshore flow should bring slightly cooler temperatures for early next week with freezing levels around 3000 meters. Max temp in the valley yesterday was +13.2.

Hope everyone is enjoying the new format, many thanks to Murray Falconer for his hard work and Arcteryx for making it possible.
