We are in for a long stretch of calm weather. Not much else to say really!

Let’s just keep our fingers crossed that the fog holds off or clears up in the mornings. There will be freezing temperatures in the morning as well so beware of black ice and frost on the roads.

The long range is starting to hint at our Christmas weather… Oh the possibilities!

  1. Chris, has your barometer broken yet? Holy Crap! I’ve never seen it this high! Spoke to the Estevan Point lightkeeper today, and their barograph is off the paper, rendering it useless! He has to use a different barometer to report the current pressure there. My barometric graphs are off the scale now too.

  2. That’s crazy!  What would cause it to go so high?  I don’t know what the standard range is, but thankfully  it does not appear to be affecting my barometer… and my graphs are all good.

    We peaked at 104.59kPa overnight.

    And that is indeed the highest value my station has ever recorded.

  4. Just read an article online talking about the strength of the high pressure over us.  This is the strongest ridge we have seen in this part of the world in the past 15 years.  Interesting to note that our high pressure is causing a devastating wind storm in Southern California.

    If we can get the ridge to weaken a bit and back off to the west, which it may later next week, we might see some arctic air come down over the top of the ridge and pay us a visit.

    Lets hope so.

  5. cliffmass.blogspot.com.  I think thats right…  Cliff Mass always has very interesting weather info.  Is more focused on washington state but covers all of the pacific northwest.  If you have never read his stuff you should check it out.

  6. Ours peaked at 1044.3mb in the early morning. The NE Pacific Barometric Analysis showed a 1047mb high going right over us too. I’ve never seen it that high ever.
