August 8, 2013

Another stellar morning, the high yesterday in the valley was recorded at +29.2 .

Temperatures have been melting the snow, but even behind Sproatt there is still some snow lingering.

At 2180 meters the temperature was +11, with calm to light winds from the S. At 1550 meters the temperature was +13. In the valley it was +15. Observations taken at 08:00 hrs this am.

For the forecast expect sun and warm temperatures as the high pressure holds. There is the possibility of a low which is off the coast of Oregon and Northern California to work its way North by Saturday. Model runs seem to be uncertain but there is discussion for some precip with the possibility of a thunderstorm for Saturday. Other models are calling for precip Monday or Tuesday. The high pressure has certainly dominated the pattern so only time will tell. The pattern is expected to return back to nice weather after the low moves through our area.

Will be interesting to see what the mountains look like in September.
