Warm frontal weather with warm temperatures, fog, rain, and stratiform clouds continued through local afternoon on the 7th. Rain ended by early afternoon with fog continuing. Winds increased from the west northwest during the evening. A quick burst of southwesterlies, lowering surface humidity and temperatures, rising pressure, etc indicated passage of a cold front but surface meteorology quickly shifted back to westerlies with temepratures warming. Presently, we are observing an overcast layer based near 1.5 km. This region of clouds is very notable on satellite imagery as an extended sheet of colder topped mid level clouds that extend to 130 West at this time. Sounding shows that cloud base is near -10 and tops near -15.
3 hourly soundings will continue as long as the mid level clouds persist.
Instruments appear to be running well.
