January 23, 2014

Some great colour again yesterday morning.

Early morning light on Mount Currie.

Looking fairly glazed.

Looking North at 16:15 yesterday afternoon, days are slowly getting longer, 30 minutes added to the lift closure times this weekend.

Weather observations for January 23, 2014, taken at 06:00 Hrs.

2240 meters          0, Winds were 20-30 KPH from the NNE
2180 meters     +1.5, Winds were 15-30 KPH from the E
1860 meters        +1, Winds were 5-10 KPH from the E
1835 meters         -1, Winds were 0-10 KPH from the ESE

1550 meters          0, No new snow, Base 100 cm
  660 meters         -4, Valley Temperature

The ridge of high pressure will bring us warm, sunny skies with increasing freezing levels for the next few days. The weak low that is approaching the coast for Tuesday (model below) may just dissipate before it even arrives. As per the discussion yesterday, there is still a chance of some precipitation later next week. Have my fingers crossed and with the Peak to Valley having some great conditions in the past few years its about time for an inclement race.  Freezing levels for the weekend have changed in the forecast, Thursday and Friday appear to reach around the 3500 meter mark then slowly decrease to 2400 meters by Sunday night.

Lets hope the low following the front on Monday gains some strength.

Lots of moisture in the North West Pacific.

Stratus cloud still very prevalent in the coastal areas and lowlands of Washington State.

Avalanches buries two snowmobiler's in the past few days: Idaho

Ski Area Closed: Alyeska
 Avalanche warning issued for another unseasonably warm day in South Central: Alaska

Kashmir under Snow Seige: India

Summit County Avalanche Rapid Deployment Team honoured by Sheriff: Colorado

The Raven is expecting snow next week, did not tell me how much?

Days end January 22, 2014.

Snow guns were on yesterday morning in the valley.

Very moist snow at 1650 meters on some steep East facing slopes at 11:00 Hrs.

Trying to make my own snow storm. Cloud seeding!

Reservoir is looking pretty full, would be nice to get some cooler temperatures!
