    Warm and Wet

    Whistler Weather forecast

    A frontal system over the BC coast will give periods of rain to the region today. The front will move north of the area overnight and Sunday as a ridge of high pressure begins to build in from the south.

    A warm flow of air off the pacific is giving Whistler plenty of precipitation along with high freezing levels. The outlook into late next week looks bad for the mountains. Freezing levels will be high for all incoming systems through Thursday next week.

    The freezing level is currently around 2300m. Last night saw winds at the top of Whistler mtn blowing 104km/ph.
    Alpine base is 20cm and shrinking.

    On a positive note environment canada is calling for below average temperatures through January, combine that with all this precip, and things could be looking up.

    Snowfall Warning

    Whistler Weather forecast Fresh Snow Wednesday morning
    video

    A vigorous pacific frontal system will bring snow to the southwest interior Thursday. Low freezing levels overnight will result in snow through most southern interior valleys with snowfall accumulations of up to 10 cm before the warm front crosses the region and snow and changes to rain later Thursday. There is some uncertainty as to when the freezing levels will rise sufficiently to change the snow to rain. Should the change in precipitation be delayed additional snowfall amounts are possible and snowfall warnings could be needed. In additon, snow over high elevation routes will cause adverse winter driving conditions. Rainfall following the snow could create slick driving conditions with a slight risk of freezing rain during the transition from snow to rain.
