There is some possible snow in the forecast for Monday and there are a number of nasty very intense low pressure systems brewing in the Pacific, one kicking up 70knot winds just East of the dateline. Looks like they’ll be deflected northward by the remnants of our High Pressure here over the next few days, but, with Typhoons hitting the Phillipines and Vietnam over the next few days, there seems to be some pretty intense weather patterns affecting the Pacific right now, so we might be inline for one soon.

I’ve changed the temperature graph on the frontpage, it is now a “heatindex/windchill” graph. It’s nice because it shows the windchill spikes whenever we get a breath of wind. Obviously there is no “heat index” this time of year, so just treat the red line as current temperature.

Update: I’ve added the Environment Canada forecasts onto the bottom of the frontpage text box. Enjoy.

  1. Wow, I’m surprised how those two lows out there have grown since yesterday. Even when I look at water vapour movies it looks like a lot more moisture than the 5 cm of snow they are forecasting.

  2. Ya, they’re pretty huge, and the satellite has got a lot of darks and red in it. I don’t know if it’s going to be cold enough to have a lot of snow, but we’re certainly going to get some precipitation! The skiers are going to have a party!
