Nothing really new to report. The fine and mild weather continues. The nights are still cool though, Kutchan got down to -5 last night. Today has been partly cloudy and hazy with temps getting up to 8 degrees down low.
Overall it's been another good March with Kutchan just cracking 2m's of snowfall for the month. This is above the long term average and only 13cm less than what we received last March (which was pretty epic).
We don't normally expect to see much snow in April but this coming weekend we are expecting some reasonable falls. Last year we recorded 25cm in April and the most ever recorded was in 1987 when Kutchan received 88cm. Will be interesting to see how much we get this weekend.
Currently there is still a complete snow cover throughout the region even on the plains surrounding the mountains. The farmers though have started spreading ash on the snow covered fields to hasten the melt. They also plough up the snow to increase the surface area and cause more melting. Pretty sure they won't be happy if it snows much this weekend! Some of us will be though!!
