No snow for here, but maybe some snow for where it counts for those poor skiers plying their trade on hay bales and fake stuff.

Todays rain will be steady, but not overly drenching. It is also at least a little on the cool side, so hopefully that means snow for the mountains and no worry about flooding or anything like that.

The worst of the rain will come on Saturday night and it will warm up a bit as well for Saturday so it is likely to rain fairly high up as well.

Either way, it’s a pretty typical winter welcome for the Olympics. Lets face it, this is Vancouver after all, did we really expect it to snow?

Meanwhile, on the other side of the Rockies, the world is basically coming to an end. It’s snowing in Dallas, and the *really*really* White House is buried under >120 centimeters of snow. That’s over 4 feet!

P.S. You will have noticed the change in style on the webpage. Not a huge change, but I think it’s cool. I’ve been honing my web coding skills and learning some new stuff.

Also, for any Internet Explorer users, I realised the menus on the side haven’t been working properly for you for quite a while. My apologies. You should now be able to use those menus a little more easily.

And finally. If you click on the Alberniweather Webcam image inside the current conditions, you will now come to a “live” feed of the webcam rather just a large static image. The image now updates automatically every 5 seconds or so.

And don’t forget about the Video Timelapses on Youtube and Wunderground. I uploaded a full year timelapse of 2009 a few weeks ago. You can see it at http://www.youtube.com/alberniweather

  1. I agree with you about the snow in Vancouver Chris. I lived there for 9 years, and I knew when they originally announced the dates that it would be a crap-shoot whether there would be good snow, even on Whistler, in late February. Oh well, money solves everything and we’ll just fly in some snow!
