Ya… so, the Polar Bear swim was cold, especially in a Wookie Robe! ????????

Thankfully there was a warm fire nearby and some dry clothes!

I wouldn’t recommend going for a dip this week, it is going to be well below freezing every morning.  There might even be some ice forming on the beach!

Expect lows around -5°C in the City Tuesday through Friday and maybe hitting -10°C in the Valley or at the Airport.

Things get interesting on Friday when a system moves in with some precipitation for Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday but it is still way too early to say how much snow might fall.

The UWash model is pretty light with most of the snow falling at higher elevations. Here is the two day look between 4AM Saturday and Monday.

This forecast will change between now and then, so we will just keep an eye on it.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!  Happy 2017!
