June 13, 2014

    Unsettled day with some convective development. June12, 2014.

    Lots of activity at the bottom of the Bike Park.

    Darker clouds did form as the day progressed.

    Eventually for a brief period it did rain, but not enough to make much of a difference.

    Rained for a short while around 15:45.


    Nice light at days end June 12, 2014.

Full moon tonight, sometimes referred to as the Strawberry Moon.


For the forecast, the low is certainly keeping us drier than forecasted 2 days ago. The deep upper low to the South of our zone continues to spin moisture and some areas are getting moderate precipitation from the NorthEasterly flow. Another weak level trough is expected for tomorrow followed by a series of weak troughs into Monday. This unsettled weather pattern will continue into early next week. There has been little confidence with the inconsistencies in the various model runs. As of now it looks to  warm up and dry out by Tuesday?? The cool and relatively moist pattern will give us cloud, sunny breaks and the chance of showers over the weekend. At this rate we could have a very dry June. The mix of high pressure and low pressure certainly brings unsettled conditions.

    Low is just South of our zone.

    Still a chance of some precipitation according to the GFS for today. Looks nice to the West.

    Another unsettled day for Saturday, the weak high pressure seems to continue to give us breaks.
