Fall Storm

Fall Storm

Postby Frisk » Oct 16th, 2017, 7:01 pm

Be careful if you're planning on taking any mountain passes tomorrow. It doesn't look like we'll experience anything spectacular here in the central okanagan as the storm is forecasted to graze by to the north but the forecasting is fluid and that could change.

https://weather.gc.ca/warnings/index_e.html?prov=bc

Potential for very strong wind gusts and intense thunderstorms beginning late Tuesday morning.

An intense fall storm will impact much of British Columbia tonight and Tuesday. The storm's low pressure centre is forecast to move across the central Interior Tuesday morning. As the low passes, very strong westerly wind gusts are expected beginning late Tuesday morning. There is also potential for a squall line to develop with intense thunderstorms. Strong gusty winds, frequent lightning and heavy showers, possibly mixed with flurries, can all be expected with the passage of the squall line.

Snow levels will drop sharply in the afternoon to near 1000 metres. Over Rogers Pass, there is the possibility for heavy flurries and strong winds to reduce visibility to near zero creating challenging driving conditions.

There remains some uncertainty in the precise track and strength of the low. Wind Warnings and/or Severe Thunderstorm Warnings may be issued as the situation unfolds.

West Kelowna lost power momentarily. Probably because of this:

Hey Frisk, im going to need you to adjust a bit more "easterly" with your forecasting.

I am a card carrying cnet member ... but yet i feel slightly discriminated against...


Theyre calling for 100-110km/h winds out here in S'toon later this aft - and no one cares!

Check my post in the nice weather thread from yesterday. I'm keeping an eye on the prairies, too.

Seriously though I hope you guys don't have grass fires. It can get nasty this time of year when the wind starts blowing like that, like what happened around Lethbridge in 2011 and 2012.

Yeah but that area is used to hail the size of peaches, quonsets blowing over to the neighbors, and the odd upside down grain bin. :biggrin:
