Weather Observations for October 2, 2015: taken at 06:00 Hours.

2180 meters     +7, Winds were 25-45 KPH from the SSW
1835 meters   +10, Winds were 15-25 KPH from the SSW
1650 meters   +10, Relative Humidity 53%
  660 meters     +6, Valley Temp, Max Temp Yesterday was +22.4.

    As of 06:45 this am we have overcast skies and unlimited visibility.

For the forecast, a weak cold front associated with the low moving in from the Northwest will bring cloudy skies and a chance of isolated showers later this morning.. The brunt of the precipitation is to the east, so hard to determine how much rain we will receive. A marine stratus layer is also pushing in from the coastal waters. The freezing level will briefly drop below the peaks this evening. The system will quickly exit our area on Saturday with some lingering cloud Saturday morning. The ridge rebuilds for Saturday afternoon into early next week with seasonable temperatures. Sunday is looking sunny. Will update the forecast on Monday, but as of now it looks like nice weather into Wednesday.

    System will move to the South with most of the precipitation in the BC interior.

    Possible cloud in the area Saturday Morning.

    High strengthens for Sunday. Low migrates Southeast.

    High pressure for Monday.

    Looks like the high pressure will dominate into early next week. Change expected on Tues/Wed.
