It’s darn cold out there… be careful!

The computer models are saying we could get up to 20cm of snow between Saturday evening and Monday Morning. So be prepared.

The weather charts are a complete mess for that time. Low pressure systems all over the map on the West Coast. It’s like they missed us!

It looks good for a white or at least slushy Christmas. As the Arctic ridge breaks down more warm Pacific air will come in so the forecast is for it to get up to above freezing on Christmas Eve and Day. It doesn’t look like too much rain if there would be any though. And I’m willing to bet that this cold air be hard to push out of the valley.

But before then… watch out for Sunday, it looks like a doozy.

  1. Hey reminds me of the 50’s & 60’s—-used to skate on the pool at Rogers Creek in the early 50’s or on the flooded Stirling field by the old Scout Hall
