May 3, 2013

Fresh cord first thing yesterday morning.

Early morning cloud looking South West.

Looking North West.

At 2240 meters the temperature was -.5, winds were 25-35 KPH from the E. At 1550 meters the temperature was +3, no new snow overnight, the base is 186 cm. In the valley it was +1. Observations taken at 06:00 Hrs.

For the forecast the high pressure ridge will dominate the area until mid next week. Each day will progressively get warmer with the freezing level also in the same pattern until Monday. An onshore flow will bring cooler temperatures for early next week but sunshine will prevail until Thursday.
