Snowfall and cloud

Snowfall and cloud

All day the first winter storm of the season has been brewing.  We got a taste last night with a little snow overnight that changed to rain this morning, at least it did below 400 meters, as evidenced by the snow line on the Britannia Range acros the channel.

Tonight is a big deal.  We are expecting 10-15 cms of snow combined with a howling Squamish blowing 80km/h and gusting to 110 km/h in the more northerly inlets along the coast.  That means tonight will be brutal stormy but tomorrow will be stunning.  Camera in hand, I'll hope to capture it all.
