   Satellite image from this am, clouds will take a while to move away.

For the forecast, lingering cloud this morning in the wake of the cold front last night,  a weak dry upper level trough will be apparent this morning.  We will likely see some cloud development on Saturday with a mix of sun and cloud. The high pressure will build between the low to the North and South bringing mostly sunny skies later this afternoon into the weekend with cool temperatures.  The high pressure to the West will strengthen Sunday into early next week with warmer temperatures and sunny skies. Will be updating the forecast in Monday's post. If anyone knows a business that might like to advertise on this blog could you please contact me. Having difficulty in finding sponsors this year. If there is not enough interest and I cannot find sponsors, October 31 could be the last day for the blog.

    Precipitation is moving South today. Dry upper level trough will bring unsettled conditions.

    Cloud should move out of our zone later today.

    High pressure pushing between the low to the North and South.

    Saturday is looking nice.

    High pressure over Southern BC.

    High pressure for Monday.

    High pressure remains into at least Thursday October 1.

between 17:00-21:00 Hours. 6.7 mm of rain fell between 20:00-21:00 Hours at 1650 meters, this is assuming that the precipitation gauge is accurate! Certainly close.
