Here’s another forecasting site which you can use to dream about the snow which never comes. The Ventusky interactive weather map is fascinating. Above you will see the data I pulled off for Lake Louise. A link is on the Main menu under weather. It takes a bit of playing around to decipher how it all works.
Let’s see if the 11 cm of snow by Thursday for Lake Louise materializes. With temperatures dropping below zero today, I’m assuming all precipitation will fall as snow.
The interactive map lets you pull up all kinds of weather stats including temperature, precipitation, cloud cover, and wind speed.
You can get the forecast for any location on earth if you have the co-ordinates, but it’s amazing what place names it recognizes.
For Elk Pass in PLPP, the snowfall forecast between now and Thursday is 19 cm. Here are some others:
- Pocaterra: 20 cm
- Mount Shark: 23 cm
- Banff: 6 cm
- Canmore: 6 cm
- Kananaskis Village: 11 cm
Good find, thanks for that.
Seems like the page does not auto refresh. If you use Chrome you can use a plugin “Auto Refresh” to keep it updated. However if you have Lake Louise marked on the map, is seems to drop it after it refreshes.
There is a good correlation with one of the better sites for the weather radar:
Trying to figure out which model is best to use, “ICON”, “GFS”, or “GEM”
This also works well with some live webcam images which I use for an active desktop, such as:
If anyone knows of any others pls add to list.
thanks for this great find
