May 28, 2015

    Stratus layer early Wednesday May 27, 2015.

    Looking into the Soo Valley.

    Layer was also prevalent above the Pemberton Meadows.

     Layer dissipated by mid morning with clear skies to the West.

    Convective cloud development later in the day.

    Wednesday evening.

Weather Observations for May 28, 2015: taken at 06:00 Hours.

2180 meters      +9, Winds were 0-5 KPH from the S
1835 meters    +10, Winds were 0-5 KPH from the E

  660 meters      +9, Valley Temp, Max Temp Yesterday was +23.9, trace of precip recorded Wed.


    As of 07:00 Hours we have a thin stratus layer with unlimited visibility above 1700 meters.


For the forecast, high pressure should maintain unsettled conditions with warm and sunnier conditions for the next few days. A low pressure system over Northern BC will drift South over central BC tonight and become stationary for a few days, then drift further South into our region. Confidence in the forecast is not great so we will see what unfolds as the week progresses. For today we can expect unsettled conditions with mostly sunny skies and some convective cloud development as the stratus layer dissipates, Friday will be a repeat of today. At this time Saturday may be the driest day with bluebird conditions. Sunday will go back to being unsettled, then the low will affect our area for Monday into Tuesday with cloudy conditions and rain, with heavy rain expected Monday evening.


    High pressure is weakening slightly.

    Low will shift Southward this evening.

    Low will hopefully stay North for  few days.
