SYNOPSIS: An upper ridge of high pressure will build eastward across southern BC for dry, mainly sunny/clear conditions today, tonight and the majority of Wednesday. A weak upper trough should flatten high pressure southward for cloudy periods Wednesday afternoon and a 40% chance of flurries late Wednesday night.
FREEZING LEVEL: Rising to between 1700 & 2000 metres this afternoon. Similar or slightly higher on Wednesday. A freezing layer will redevelop at surface tonight.
FERNIE ALPINE RESORT FORECAST: TODAY: Early morning fog patches, otherwise sunny. High near +3.
TONIGHT: Mainly clear, patchy fog and low cloud possible overnight. Low near -3.
WEDNESDAY: Sunny with late day cloudy periods. High near +4.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Cloudy with clear periods, 40% chance of flurries overnight. Low near -2.
OUTLOOK: THURSDAY: Variable cloud and a slight chance of flurries during the morning. Sunny with cloudy periods during the afternoon. High near +3.
FRIDAY: Cloudy with sunny breaks. 60% chance of wet flurries, mainly during the afternoon and evening. High near +2.
SATURDAY: Sunny with cloudy periods. High near +5.
CONFIDENCE/DISCUSSION: Fair to good confidence. A stagnating airmass supports fog patches this morning and again late tonight-early Wednesday. The moisture content of the late Wednesday night-early Thursday system appears minimal, most of the current guidance confines flurries north of Fernie. A frontal system should push inland from the coast on Friday but it also appears to largely dissipate as it encounters/drifts over an upper ridge of high pressure. High pressure rebuilds on Saturday.
