Yarco was snowy

So even though a warning wasn’t posted for us, we got 60kph winds this morning around 4AM… which is warning worthy… so this Storm is now christened Yarco! How much snow did you see? Didn’t last long here but i’m sure the skihills are excited.

Update: I got this message today about the lightning storm we had during the 11/12 storm event (Zorro).

there were about 31 strikes total across Central Vancouver Island with almost half within about 60 miles of Port Alberni.

  1. That storm desrves a name like Yarko – it sure didn’t amoount to much. I was surprised to see the wind speed at your end of town because it was barely noticeable here.

  2. check that out, a 954.8 low… thats pretty intense. lucky it wasnt down here, 65knot winds, hurricane force. imagin the destruction.

  3. that would be insane to go through… i was reading some USA weather service site for Alaska after i saw that low and it had warnings for those areas of hurricane force winds tonight. i cant imagine it lol

  4. Ya, I’ve been watching it on these forecast texts:

    http://www.weather.gov/om/marine/zone/hsmz.htm

    Get it through the Forecasts–>Marine–>North Pacific High Seas

    Great for seeing what’s coming our way a few days out… once you figure out what lat/long we are and how long it takes to get from a to b… I still have trouble wrapping my head around their forecasts sometimes.

    When I see ‘Hurricane Warning’ on those texts I sit up and take notice.

  5. The really fun part of course isn”t the winds, it’s the waves.. that 952 low is generating 30ft waves.

    I’ve been in 20ft waves… (in Hecate Straits) God it was the most fun I’ve ever had while being scared out of my tree. Way better than any rollercoaster!
