We lucked out and it stayed quite a bit colder than was originally forecast! We ended up with one of the biggest totals of snow on the Island along with Courtenay. 8.5cm was measured at Alberniweather HQ.

It’s going to get warm too. It should be 5°C or more today and tomorrow.

Then Wednesday morning it might get even warmer. Victoria and Puget Sound might even get over 13° C.
