    Apex got 40 cm last night and it's still snowing. Local knowledge says "October snow is temporary snow," but I dont know what to say about September snow.

    Apex this morning, via FB. The almost buried picnic tables give a good idea of snow depth. Snow level went down below 1000 m which is the really surprising thing. I've been snowed on up there every month of the year, but the village is at 1700 m so that's understandable. For it to snow so low so early in autumn is pretty unusual. We've had a cool, wet September so this is a progression I guess.

    Views from the valley below on the way home from the coast today:



    There must have been some tree carnage up high today, a week ago there were hardly any leaves turned even yellow, let alone fallen off. Trees with leaves still on hold a lot more snow, so you can bet lots of branches failed under the unexpected snow load.

    Shouldn’t this be in Weather?


    Some decent snowfall for Friday in the Canadian Rockies.

    Yep there is a cold front on its way. Strong wind and some snow tonight as the cold air mixes with the pacific air. Been +15 and sunny down in the valleys, we are laying a big patio slab today just in time to beat the system.

    This currently resides in Weather>> General & World. Unless I am missing something, it’s in its right home.

    With all the early snow falls seems Whistler is missing out atm. Realise season hasn’t kicked off yet and it’s early but is there anything significant brewing up on the long range models for the next week or so.

    The way the Northern PV is maturing there is an omega blocking scenario over the Pac NW, so nothing of interest in the next 10 days for that region IMO.
