The winter weather continues.  It got down to -5.3°C this morning at Alberniweather, colder at the airport.

So far it has been mostly dry and quite pleasant and sunny with just a few flurries in the air, but that is changing Wednesday.

All of the models predict a small amount of snow starting mid morning Wednesday. ( the first grey bars below)

It will clear up and get cold again tonight and then there is risk of a little more snow tomorrow morning.

The only model that disagrees is UWash. It does not have any snow falling near sea level. But given how cold it is, the only thing that will make snow less likely is if the system itself doesn’t have the uumpf to deliver the precipitation at all.

Here is a vancouver forescasters perspective.

So we’ll see.

The cold weather will continue into the weekend and there may be a little larger system on the way for Friday and Saturday but it is too early to say what it might deliver us.

Finally, please consider donating to The Coldest Night, and come walk for the cause on Saturday. It will definitely be chilly.

Happy Wednesday!
