Weather observations for November 12, 2014; taken at 06:00 Hours.

2240 meters     -10, Winds were 30-70 KPH from the E

    Clear and cold with unlimited visibility this am.

For the forecast, strong upper ridge with an Easterly flow will continue to give us sunny and cold weather into early next week. Freezing levels will begin to rise on Sunday as an upper low may have some influence with a warmer air mass. More on that as we get closer to the week end. This pattern makes for a boring forecast!!

    High pushes any low pressure systems to the South. Forecast image for Saturday.

    Great light Tuesday Morning.

    Strong outflow wind in Howe Sound all day. Expect the same conditions today.

   The question is?? Will there be sliding this weekend or next weekend.
