Ortler Peak, South Tyrol Region, Italy: Mountain climber recovered after being buried in an avalanche on April 1, 2013. More information found in links below.

Certainly looking cloudy at 2240 meters this am.

At 2240 meters the temperature was +1.5, winds were 20-40 KPH from the E. At 1550 meters the temperature was +7. In the valley the temperature was +11. Observations taken at 08:00 hrs this am. Yesterday the max temperature in the valley was +16, normal for this time of the year is +21.

For the forecast the stationary low off Vancouver Island will continue to send us rain with the occasional break until Saturday. A strong upper level high should slowly move into our area by Saturday with the possibility of some nice summer weather extending into the following week end. Models are still waffling for how long the high will remain in our area. Confidence is on the likely side of the scale.

The low just keeps on sending bands of rain to our zone.

Stationary low has been sitting off the coast for some time now. Should be replaced by a high pressure by Saturday.

High pressure systems (left and right of Btm) forecasted for Saturday!! Lets hope they push the low away.
