This is quite unlike when measurable snow occurred on five separate days, totalling For three straight hours, from to PST on 18 October , the rain pounded down, thrumming loudly on the roof, rushing on the foliage, churning down drain pipes, sending streams of water down hillsides and filling gutters. The entrainment of dry air fits with the fact that very little rainfall actually fell at Coquitlam Riverview Heights on 14 December—a meagre 1. The vort max either moves to the east side of the low or directly under it and eliminates the CVA , thus the upper-level divergence associated with the vort max becomes insignificant. For the extreme 1-h rain totals, a heavy rain shower on 20 September is clearly at the top with a whopping Above that, however, one would expect to see the winds gradually decrease as the altitude increases. What this information suggests is that likely, peak customers out occurred earlier in the day, probably around the time of peak wind speeds, PST.

A cyclone phase space derived from thermal wind and thermal asymmetry. Indeed, many intense extratropical cyclones without tropical origins develop warm core structure Gyakum a,b.

BC Hydro has an informal term for this event: To help with the interpretation of the listed absolute pressure gradients, a handy chart is provided Figure 2. The system followed a classic development pattern, and behaved like a classic southeasterly windstorm up to landfall. One measure of the performance of a power grid, called quality Qt , is typically reported as the proportion of the system that is still operational, in percent Figure 5.
