    Looking up the Squamish Valley Monday afternoon. Leaves are out.

    Mount Garibaldi.

    Still a lot of snow up there.

    Clouds over Wedge around 17:00 Hours yesterday.

    Just after sunset Monday evening.

    As of 06:30 Hours this am we have broken cloud and unlimited visibility.


Weather Observations for April 21, 2015; taken at 06:00 Hours.

2180 meters     +2, Winds were 20-25 KPH from the SSW

For the forecast, cool marine air and cloud will slowly move onshore this morning in a West Northwest flow aloft, with an upper trough and cold front arriving later in the day.  The freezing level will begin to descend to around 1800 meters this evening in a Southwesterly flow aloft. Wednesday will be mostly cloudy with some intermittent light rain and the FL rising to 1800 meters and dropping to 1200 meters by the evening.  Another frontal band will arrive for Thursday with mostly cloudy skies and the possibility of some light precipitation, with a cooler day (FL 1600 - 1000 meters). Could see a break in the flow Thursday evening into Friday morning with unsettled conditions. Another weak frontal band will push through on Friday afternoon with the chance of some very light precipitation and a FL ranging from a high of 1600 metes to a low of 1200 meters. At this time Saturday morning is looking unsettled with a more active frontal band moving in for the evening. Guesstimates 3-5 cm of snow by Wednesday morning above 1700 meters.


    Clouds began to develop early this morning as the slow moving front moves down the coast.

    Clouds moved in early this am.

    Light precipitation will arrive this afternoon into this evening.

    Cloudy for Wednesday with the chance of some light intermittent showers.

    There will be breaks in the pattern mid week.

    Unsettled conditions for most of the week.

    Saturday night into Sunday will likely be cloudy and wet.
