November 5, 2014


    Monday morning brought a few showers but also some nice breaks.

    Leaves are starting to fall off a little faster. A frost would be nice!!

    Alpine is still looking good.

    Whistler Bowl looks to be filling in.

    Lots of advection yesterday. In meteorology and physical oceanography, advection often refers to the     transport of some property of the atmosphere or ocean, such as heat, humidity or salinity. Advection is important for the formation of orographic clouds and the precipitation of water from clouds, as part of the hydrological cycle.

For the Forecast, the lull between the rain events ended early this morning . We can expect cloudy conditions with very light precipitation for most of the day as a warm front ushers in another Mod- Heavy precipitation event this evening with freezing levels higher than Wedge Mountain. The precipitation should ease off Thursday afternoon, then an upper trough moves through with light precipitation in the afternoon and a declining freezing level which should level out at around 1500 meters late in the evening from a trailing cold front. A weak high pressure will build for Friday into the weekend with unsettled conditions. Friday is looking like the coldest day with freezing levels as low as 1200 meters in the morning, unfortunately at this time it looks like the FL will steadily rise into Monday, topping out at around 3500 meters. Still a ways off so more on that in future posts.
                                                                        

    Could get pretty wet this evening!!

   The next three days in motion.

    Warm fronts followed by cold fronts, we seem to be in a pattern.
