Good morning sunshine!!

It is a great day to get outside and work on your goggle tan today. The sun is out and blue skies. It is expected to stay mostly clear today with some clouds coming in later on in the afternoon. Winds will remain calm throughout the day.

The temperature this morning was a cold -8 C in the valley and is expected to reach up to about 2C in the early afternoon. Up on the slopes it should remain below freezing with a range of -1 C to -5 C with a wind chill factor making it feel like upto -7 C. Winds are a light 1 m/s from WSW and WNW and will remain calm.

We have unlimited visibility projected for today with great conditions to view the valley while enjoying some sunshiny turns.

We will likely see continued clear skies until Thursday when some clouds will roll in, however, Friday should bring on some more clear skies. There will be a warming trend occurring into the week meeting the next weather system over the weekend. This will raise freezing levels and warm up the valley and resort areas. Next snow seems to be due around Saturday.
