Forecast is for a dusting of snow tonight and tomorrow, it’ll be interesting to see how much we get, seems to be a lot of moisture in the system coming our way. If temperatures stay below 2C don’t be surprised if we get a little more snow than forecast, higher elevations should get quite a bit.

Update 12:35 PST: Well, it’s Raining and slushing here but it’s snowing heavily on the Hump! Be Careful if you’re travelling today! We’re right on the edge of the temperature for snowfall, so local conditions might vary considerably. It might be snowing heavily at Sproat Lake or out Beaver Creek… or even up at Coombs Candy. It only needs to be about 1.5C for the snow to really fall. If we get a little breath of northern air at the end of this front it might turn to heavy snow, but right now it’s definitely wetter.

Oh.. and I’m putting a call out for Matthias! Are you there!? I need to talk about Saturdays Re-Discovering the Alberni Valley forum… email me at chrisale @ gmail dot com

Update 6:45PM: Looks like it’s done snowing. We just had a short power outage as well for about 45 minutes. I hear Victoria is still getting some snow but it’ll stop as well and it’s supposed to be cold for the next few days. Down to -3 or so likely.

  1. Chris,

    I hope you get 10 inches of the white stuff – Nov 18 – I arrived home from your P.A. -back to my PA. and there was 10 inches of snow on the ground – all gone now. But, just the same hope you get to have the same experiense – I’ll be back in your P.A. on Dec 20. See you then !

    Mike
