    As of 07:00 Hours this am we have overcast skies and variable visibility at 2150 meters.

For the forecast, the low pressure will bring mostly cloudy skies with some light intermittent precipitation this morning as it moves out of our zone in a South to Southwesterly flow. The air mass is moist and unstable so there is a chance of  thunderstorms later today in or near Whistler. The freezing level will rise from 1000 meters to 1800 meters this afternoon and drop back down to 1400 meters this evening. The upper ridge will begin to influence the area tonight into early Wednesday morning with unsettled conditions for most of the day but improving by late afternoon. The FL will rise to as high as 2000 meters Wednesday afternoon in a Northerly flow. The ridge will strengthen for Thursday with sunny warm conditions into the weekend. FL will gradually rise each day topping out at around 3200 meters by Sunday. Guesstimates: 4-8 cm in the alpine by Wednesday morning. (above 1800 meters)

    Cloudy day ahead with moist and unstable air.

    The trough will move through by early Wednesday morning.

    Unsettled Wednesday with clearing later in the day.

    Thursday is looking like a sunny warm day.
