The kids got their wish! SD70 (along with pretty much everywhere else) has closed schools today!

North Island College, VIU and multiple other districts and schools have closed today as well.

We have about 10cm (I haven’t officially measured yet, still in bed! :)) at Alberniweather HQ and there is more around town. I am going back to bed so I can sleep in like the kids will! 🙂 Happy sledding everyone! It should snow on and off all day in Port Alberni and more on than off on the East and South island. I will update this post later on. Would love to see pictures of the snow at your placd and of your snowman or fun in the snow as you enjoy the day. Send it in by comment or email and I will post it here.

Here is the text of the Snowfall Warning today:

4:44 AM PST Tuesday 12 February 2019
Snowfall warning in effect for:
Inland Vancouver Island
A long period of snowfall with total amounts of 15 to 25 cm is expected.

A second low pressure centre in as many days is giving more snow to the South Coast today.

This second disturbance off southwest Vancouver Island is spreading snow to virtually the entire South Coast this morning. Further accumulations of 5 to 10 cm can be expected in most areas. The snowfall will gradually taper off this afternoon into the early evening as low centre weakens.

Have fun everyone! 🙂
