And no I’m not talking about Amundsen’s ice bust on display today at the South Pole in honour of 100 years since he made it there.

I’m talking about our snow forecast here… Or lack of it materializing. There is still a chance it could cool down enough tonight for us to get some snow… But you’ll notice the EC forecast has removed any accumulations from the possibilities. Bummer.

Be careful if you are driving, especially West over Sutton pass. There are likely to be pockets of cold air that could cause snow and visibility problems even if it doesn’t take hold on the road.

  1. Looks like it is snowing on the malahat north of victoria.  However it doesnt look like there is much moisture coming in to work with.  I think if the precip came down hard enough it would lower the snow levels closer to sea level but not sure if thats gonna happen.
