Alberta Foothills Weather

November 21

After another warm week of +10 temps and spring clouds, normal temps have returned as we now sit under high pressure and severe clear skies . Yesterday was the first day of November with a daily high below zero, at -1C. We hit -16 at sunrise this morning, our coldest temp since April 4.
Things were a lot colder to the north and east, -25C north of Edmonton, -31 in Nipawin, Saskatchewan.
The cold crush is forecast to deepen next week, as Bill Matheson‘s “Most dreaded of all meteorological phenomena.. the Siberian High” pushes way down into the states.
We got a light dusting of snow last night and now it looks like nothing here till Sunday.
This will be the last shot of comet Holmes for me, it’s cloud has grown larger than the sun in size, but it has also dimmed to the point where I can’t pick it up with the 300mm anymore, even with a very long exposure. The final 10sec. shot was taken with a 50mm lens at f1.8.
