Weather report from West Bragg Creek
This photo of Moose Mountain shows the sky conditions over the Elbow Valley of Kananaskis. Weather data and webcam image are updated every 15-minutes from 6 AM to 11 PM, Mountain Time.
Kananskis is a multi-use natural area 50 km west of Calgary, Alberta. Hikers, cattle, loggers and gas wells share the same territory leading to inevitable conflicts. Save Kananaskis. Hope you enjoy the weathercam.
See examples of sky conditions as a reference.
The webcam image above uses a telephoto lens that shows a small part of the sky above Kananaskis. If there is snow on the tree branches, that is recent snow. The snow base on the ground is not visible in this image. Sky conditions in Bragg Creek are often different from those shown in this image.
This image shows the view from the weather station with the webcam view highlighted.
How it works
The weather report uses a Davis Instruments Weather Wizard III, a security system video camera, connected to an old 450Mhz Pentium III personal computer, running Windows 98 through a Snappy video capture device and a program called Weather Monitor that captures the weather data, snaps a picture, updates a template web page and uploads the page and the photo to the braggcreek.ca web server hourly.
