Well that was a fun day. We managed to get just about exactly what the models were predicting for snow. Some areas of Port Alberni got a couple centimetres, others, like here at Alberniweather HQ, only ended up with a trace before it melted a bit (and then froze).

Unfortunately for Shaylee, who was the only contestant to have guessed yesterday for the first snow day, that trace wasn’t enough to measure and declare a winner! Sorry Shaylee! It’s going to be very cold tonight and tomorrow night. We may even hit record territory tomorrow and Sunday. It won’t feel quite as cold as it already is in Victoria and it will on Eastern sections of the island and on the Lower Mainland. It was -12C with the windchill at Victoria Airport the last I checked. BRRRRRRrrrr.

Here are some reports, and pictures I got from folks around the area. Thanks everyone! If you have pictures Facebook or tweet them to me or send them to alberniweather@gmail.com. It looks like the place to go for the most snow, amazingly, was the West Coast!

Kari Chase McNabb: About an inch, McCoy lk/ sproat area

Denise and Ron Norman: Dumping in Ucluelet

Chris Groeneveld: apparently there was about 10 inches dumped down at my work. Its about 10k down the canal across from mactush.

Donna Dawkin: flakes floating around all day, but nothing in downtown Tofino. Crazy compared to Ukee!! bet the kids were loving it!

Sue Bozak 10cm in my front yard in Bamfield.

“@Josie_Osborne (Mayor of Tofino): @AlberniWeather @madelinegcbc Distressingly, it only snowed south of the 49th parallel. It is still green and grey in #Tofino!”

From Parksville Weather: “@BennySomms: @AlberniWeather Barely even a trace in #Parksville.”

From a friend in Sooke: Kellie Ferguson Just a teaser in Sooke!

And here is a picture I took on my way out the door at VIU in Nanaimo, where they got about 1cm.

Stay warm out there! We should get some more snow next week. Details when the models firm up.

  1. so I got to work yesterday and it was actually 6 inches of snow not 10 inches. still way more than the trace in town. amazing what 10 km can mean for accumulation.
