Monday and Tuesday this week should look pretty much the same. We will start foggy and hopefully clear up in the early afternoon. The next rain making system is set to arrive early Wednesday morning, then we have what look to be 3 or 4 systems in a row delivering rain between now and the end of the month. This should hopefully bring us closer to our normal a November rainfall. Though I doubt we will get the 150mm we need in order to be officially ‘normal’.

There seems to be another bout of cold coming to start off December.

By the end of this week there is another raft of cold air lurking in Yukon.20131125-070701.jpg

And the models bring it down into the southern reaches of the province through the weekend.

If that pans out there is a possibility that the last rain system we get may deliver its punch in the form of white stuff next Sunday and Monday. But it is too far ahead in the forecast to say anything but, maybe.

Happy Monday all!
