Great news for us mountain/backcountry enthusiasts! Avalanche Canada is now hosting an excellent mountain weather forecast on their website. This forecast is produced by professional meteorologists and provides an excellent synopsis (text description) and unique images and diagrams. It shows us everything we need to know on the synoptic scale (provincial). After viewing this we can apply a spot forecast (spotwx.com) and figure out what the overall weather pattern will bring to the North Shore.
