I dunno. Walking out the door with clear skies and the stars out overhead just seems a little strange for November doesn’t it?
I’ve heard more than a few comments from people wondering if they brought Alberta winters back with them from Alberta.
Be careful out there. The roads will be icy especially on north facing hills or spots shaded by buildings or trees.
The highways are all open today but again be careful, and remember highway 4 requires winter rated (snowflake) tires between October and March. I just got some amazing new Nokian all season tires that are actually ll season. They have the snowflake so can handle some snow and ice but they don’t wear down like a regular set of tires. So if you can’t afford or justify two sets of tires, consider these. We have them on our RAV4 which we do not have seperate winter tires for. They’re fantastic.
Back to weather: This weekend could potentially be very very interesting. We have quite cold air coming in for Saturday (-4C) followed by our strongest rain event of the season (130mm over 48hours) so far on Sunday evening and Monday. It should all end up as rain… But if we start out cold and that cold gets trapped it could look a lot like yesterday or worse.
Consider it a heads up. la Nina is really sockin’ it to us!
