First Blizzard of the Season...

  • Seeing the first blizzard of the season already howling in Resolute NU and continuing tomorrow.
  • The low pressure system responsible is currently spinning over the Kitikmeot and continuing eastward kicking up winds enough to cause blizzard conditions in the High Arctic as winds gust to 90 km/h today.
  • The system looks to weaken over next 24 hours and conditions in Resolute should improve by Sunday morning.
  • In the Kitikmeot, expecting a few more centimetres of snow to fall tonight and tomorrow and breezy conditions in place.
  • The Kivalliq will see another rainy day ahead tomorrow with winds picking up in Arviat, and through the rest of the Kivalliq on Sunday with a system moving in from the South. 
  • Baffin will see a sunny start to the day tomorrow with more rain/snow moving in for the evening hours, and lasting through Sunday.


  • Seeing a clearing trend for the NWT tomorrow that will last through the weekend with a strong ridge of high pressure in place. 
  • Temperatures look to remain above seasonal for most of the weekend as well especially through the Mackenzie Delta and Sahtu (where temps will be around 8 or 9 degrees above normal)
  • Also clear and warm through the south, although temps will be closer to seasonal around 5-7 degrees.


  • Also a sunny day pretty much across the board tomorrow with mild temps around 5 degrees above seasonal (in high single digits or close to 10 degrees)
  • By Sunday seeing some cloud cover moving in and areas like Watson Lake and Mayo could see some showers.
  • Rainy day for holiday Monday with a new system moving in off the Pacific although temperature still relatively warm..
