November 1, 2014

    Clouds began to open up yesterday afternoon, just in time for Trick and Treating.

    Tantalus Range just before sunset Friday afternoon.

    As soon as it began to cool off the ground fog formed. Snow line is still looking good.

    End of the day Friday, looking into Horstman Glacier. Sunset officially at 17:51.

   This image is from last year on November 1, 2013. Colder but actually less snow.

    Above the cloud layer its clear, cold and the snow guns are blowing snow. 07:15 this AM.

Weather observations for November 1, 2014; taken at 06:00 Hours.

2240 meters        -6, Winds were 5-15 KPH from the NNW
1860 meters        -4, Winds were 5-10 KPH from the S
1550 meters        -3, Relative Humidity was 96 %
  660 meters       +2, Valley Temperature, Max Temp Yesterday +7.6, 5.1 mm of rain recorded

For the Forecast, we can expect a dry day with unsettled conditions (mix of sun and cloud) once the fog layer dissipates. Sunday is looking cloudy with the chance of some light  snow flurries in the alpine with freezing levels near mid mountain for both days. A series of warm fronts will affect our area next week, with freezing levels hovering near the upper elevations. This trend will hopefully change by Friday. Certainly feels cooler in the valley this morning.

    Weak upper level trough South of us haven some influence.

    Image from yesterday, still lots of moisture out in the Pacific.

    The Room, Stawamus Chief Provincial Park. Good place to be when it is raining.

    Cheakamus River below Daisy Lake was flowing along on Friday.

   Moon came out Friday evening with dry conditions.

    The season will be with us soon enough, temperatures could be a bit cooler for an ideal situation.
