-The cold front of this system will be responsible for the clearing once it passes late afternoon, but it will bring in a more seasonal air mass: afternoon highs of 10 tomorrow but 6 overnight
- Snow levels will begin to fall by early tomorrow to below 900 m
- Vancouver will then remain under the influence of a cold low pressure system that will get stuck spinning in our upper atmosphere right through to the weekend
- Tomorrow will will still deal with some morning showers (and snow for mountain passes) but by Thursday there is just a slight risk of showers with the sun and by Friday and Saturday we are looking at blue sky days
- However with clear overnights..it will get very chilly; getting close to zero for Vancouver for the end of the week with afternoon highs not making it to double digits
- At this point looks like first big snowfall for skiers and snowboarders will happen Sunday...translating to cold rain for Vancouver
Nor-Easter Will Still Impact NE Coast Tomorrow Morning..But Looking Weaker
- An early-season Nor'easter is taking shape along the coast of South Carolina today, but is now forecast to be weaker and move farther offshore than originally forecast, resulting in lower impacts to the New Jersey and New York coasts than originally feared.
- The storm will still likely bring wind gusts up to 80 kmp and a small storm surge that may cause moderate beach erosion along much of the coastline damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
- The greatest flooding will occur during the Wednesday early afternoon high tide cycle, near 1 pm EST. Fortunately, the high tides this week will be some of the lowest of the month
- While the storm will slow down recovery efforts from Hurricane Sandy, this is a pretty ordinary Nor'easter of the type the Northeast sees several times per year, and will not likley cause major damage.
World's Rarest Whale Seen for First Time
- The world's rarest whale has been seen for the first time after a mother and calf were washed up and died on a beach in New Zealand. The spade-toothed beaked whale is so rare that nobody has seen one alive, but scientists had proof the species still exists.
