Looks like we have a similar setup coming at us for this weekend as we did a couple weeks ago. We shouldn’t be getting the big dump that we did last time, but it’s going to get chilly over the weekend, and then a Pacific front should sweep through Monday and Tuesday and we’ll play the, “when will it be above freezing” game.

What I would like to know is…. when if this is what it’s going to be like through the early part of December, then what’s it going to be like in the late part of December when maybe the mean temperatures drop just a little more as we actually get past December 21 and into real winter.

And for you Ski Buffs out there, The Word, is that Mt. Washington is opening today with a 160cm base, which is an exceptional base for the start of the year. They are planning to open the OutBack next Friday. Sweet!

  1. It was a wee bit nippy in town today. Left home at -2, got to Hydro Hill and it was +4! Then back to subzero along the lake. Weird.
