    Saturday April 25, 2015--Another awesome day in Whistler.

    Convective cloud development in the morning.

    Isolated showers in the afternoon.

    Lots of sunny breaks.

    New snow warmed up quickly when the sun came out.

    17:00 hours Saturday April 25, 2015.

    Stratus cloud layer this morning at 2000 meters.

   Sunrise this morning was at 05:58.

Weather Observations for April 26, 2015; taken at 06:00 Hours.

2180 meters     -5, Winds were 10-15 KPH from the SE
1835 meters     -4, Winds were 5-10 KPH from the E
1650 meters     -3, No new snow,  Base 178 cm, relative humidity is 99%
  660 meters    +2, Valley Temp, Max Temp Yesterday was +11.8.

    As of 07:00 Hours this am we have obscured skies and variable visibility at 1835 meters.

    As of 07:00 Hours this am at 2180 meters we have broken cloud and unlimited visibility.

For the forecast, a stratus cloud layer has moved into the area overnight as a weak warm front slowly pushes onshore today. Clouds will lift, for mostly cloudy conditions today with some isolated showers this morning becoming steady by this evening. The freezing level will rise to 1900 meters this afternoon then drop to around 1500 meters tonight. Monday is also looking like a cloudy day with light precipitation and the FL topping out at 2600 meters. A short lived break occurs Monday night before a more vigorous cold front moves onto the coast for Tuesday morning with heavy precipitation easing to light precipitation by the afternoon. The FL will fluctuate from a high of 1850 meters to a low of 1400 meters by Tuesday evening as another brief break brings some clearing Tuesday night. There is little confidence in the model runs beyond Tuesday but it looks like a trough will continue to send cool showery weather into our zone until the weekend. The high pressure to our South will lose out to the large low off the coast of Alaska. 

    Cloudy for today with some light precipitation later in the day.

    Large low to the Northwest will be the main influence for the weather pattern this week.

    Low will keep spinning cloud our way during the week.

    Clouds moving onshore early Sunday morning.

    High pressure does try to push back at times but will have little influence on the pattern this week.


Avalanche has killed 18 people on Everest, 2,200  Casualties in total from Earthquake: Nepal

Survivors describe quake released avalanche: Mt Everest

After shocks causing more problems in Nepal: Katmandu

Another weather perspective: Avalanche Canada

    Large cornices are still an issue as it warms up and they get weaker.

    Top of Whistler yesterday afternoon.

    Some snowballing from the strong sun yesterday morning.

    Convective clouds grew all morning.

    JC Chair yesterday afternoon.

    A much different day than Friday!!
