June 4, 2014

Thanks to Kevin Fogolin for these recent images. 

Hi Wayne,

Thought I would pass along a few photos of some recent deep slab activity
noted last week up in the Toba area. Definitely more late season activity
this year when compared back to the last few. Failures were suspected on the
Oct.30th layer with all activity observed on north west through to north
east alpine slopes with cornice fall as the primary trigger.

Thanks again for all the work in keeping the blog going, much appreciated!

Weather observations for June 4, 2014; taken at 07:00 Hrs.

2240 meters       +1, Winds were 30-40 KPH from the SSW
1860 meters       +2, Winds were 20-30 KPH from the SSE
1550 meters       +4, Snow is still melting, Base?
  660 meters     +11, Valley Temperature, Max Temp Yest +22

For the forecast, the high pressure off the coast will maintain low level onshore flow into the weekend. We can expect dry and mild conditions for this time period. The low pressure system North of our zone still has the potential to spin some cloud into our zone. Convective cloud development has been occurring but luckily so far we have seen no lightning in the area. Chance of some convective showers each day, but Friday looks to be the one day when it will occur. We may see a change on Sunday as an upper level trough passes through the area with cloudy conditions and the possibility of light rain. More on that later. Freezing levels will remain well above the peaks in our area for the most part, slightly lower today, just above 2300 meters this morning. The marine stratus layer made its way into the valley last night, should burn off as it is not particularly a thick layer.

   Mid mountain layer as of 07:00 Hrs this am.

    Satellite Image from this morning at 07:00 Hrs.  Marine stratus layer has moved onshore.

    High pressure still dominating into the weekend.

    Satellite image from June 3, 2014 in the morning. Extensive stratus layer along the coast.
