I was pleased to walk out of City Council chambers last night and into the rain! There is just something about it that says home.
It will rain a bit more this morning but the main event will be tonight and Wednesday morning. The main force of the system will actually be to the south of us.
Pretty anemic for January.
Speaking of which, the stories yesterday were:
- Vancouver has had its second longest dry streak of weather in January in history.
- Alaska smashed heat records yesterday across the state, the NWS released this image of a snowless Alaska mountain range. I’ve included a map to show where it is, marked B. A is Fairbanks.
- with the windchill, it will be -50° C in Winnipeg… Actual temperatures though will not be setting record lows… Unlike Dawson and other locals in Yukon that are running 15° C above normal and will likely set record highs today.
Finally, if you can come out to any special presentation this year, Id highly recommend this one with Climate Researcher, Nobel Prize Winner and Green Party MLA Andrew Weaver talking about our climate and how it is changing and how it’s going to change. Tell your friends. Feb 4, 7PM at Char’s Landing (the old church across from City Hall)
