There may be some snow on the roads today, especially places like Sutton Pass and the Hump as we have a weak system moving through that could give us some flurries.

No large accumulations from what I can see and we should have a little rain tomorrow before it dries off on the weekend.

The next week or two look quite warm but dry.

  1. Boring and rather dismal! According to the GFS forecast it’s going to be like this for a while – getting warmer through next week but then cooling off considerably by Feb 2 or so, with very little precipitation. I just hope the sun pokes through occasionally.

  2. OK, now that was weird. I couldn’t access this site, getting some sort of database error, then as I’m pecking an email out to Chris, it comes back???? Chris, were you doing some maintenance on the site at all?

  3. Strange. It could be that my web host was doing maintenance or maybe had an issue. I don’t have any email from though so hard to say. Glad it’s back though!
