November 13, 2014












    Satellite image and image above taken at the same time yesterday mourning. November 12, 2014.

    This piece of water will likely be skate able today.

    Blowing snow at the Tube park, Wednesday afternoon.

    There are lots of folks in town itching to go sliding, most likely, they will be able to next weekend.

    Sunset Wednesday evening, officially sunset was at 16:32, ouch the days are getting very short.



Weather observations for November 13, 2014; taken at 06:00 Hours.

2240 meters    -11, Winds were 25-65 KPH from the NNE
1860 meters      -8, Winds were 10-25 KPH from the SSE
1550 meters      -9,  Relative Humidity 53 %
  660 meters      -4, Valley Temperature, Max Temp Yest was +0.3

    Clear skies and unlimited visibility this am. Looking a lot like winter!!


For the forecast, cool and dry weather will be with us for today as the strong high pressure maintains its ground.  The strong Easterly flow should ease off a little later today into Friday. The large area of high pressure will maintain itself into early next week, there was a hint of a bit of change in the NAM and GFS models but the ECMWF is looking like the model de jour. Looks like any moisture will be heading south of our area over the weekend. Hopefully this very strong ridge will weaken by next Wednesday. There is certainly the likelihood of warmer temperatures by the weekend as a warmer air mass moves our way on Saturday night,  inverted temperatures, then warm temps up to 3000 meters are forecasted. Much uncertainty in the long range forecast so keep tuned to the ever changing discussion.



    Very strong high pressure to the East. Friends flew from the East yesterday, 35 min off their time.

    The GFS is teasing us.

    Cool ice formations!!


    Great temperatures for snow making, plus the relative humidity is ideal.

    A couple of days and this will be a snow field.

    Tower guns make great snow!! Its all about the height off the ground.
