November 20, 2014


    Sunrise Wednesday morning, Phalanx Ridge.

    Frozen water still around in shaded areas.

    Even with the +4 C temperatures there was still ice near the Cheakamus River.

    Cloudy conditions on Wednesday afternoon.

    These clouds remind me of snow on the way.

    Just after sundown on Green Lake November 19, 2014.

For the forecast,  a cold front passed the area early this morning and a weak low pressure system in a Westerly flow will slowly move over our zone today. A stronger front will move in tomorrow with steady light precipitation and another cold front moving through Friday evening.
