Cathedral Point - 111 km/h Gusts

A windy day down in Burke Channel with gusts of 111km/h and a temperature of -15 C.  Here in the Bella Coola Valley we had a low of -21 C last night and high of -18 C today.  Winds are up and down, but it's definately not calm.

This snap shot of recent satellite photo shows the phenomenon of the outflow winds all along the north coast. You can see the wisps of clouds the wind is generating as it comes out of the various valleys and fjords and sweeps out on the Pacific picking up moisture.  It looks interesting in the animated satellite loops tonight.  Grizzly
