Creepy Days to Continue..Oct 22nd
- The fog event continues for Vancouver today with some of the worst visibilities yet this morning. YVR got down to less than 400 m visibility and less than 60 m vertical visibility.
- The high pressure system and the inversion will continue to keep low level moisture locked in place through tomorrow. Some sun is breaking through the fog this afternoon but evening fog will redevelop once again tonight
- Clear and warm temperatures remain in place above the fog for the local mountains
- The high pressure ridge may finally begin to break down on Thursday, perhaps allowing for more mixing in the atmosphere and therefore fog dissipation. But very hard to tell if we will have just the right amount... not a big weather-maker at this point and it may end up pushing more fog and stratus inland. Tough one to forecast
- Either way looks like we may get some sun Friday and through the weekend in the afternoons
Wintery Weather for Parts of Prairies & Northern Ontario
- A sharp contrast between mild and winter air is dividing Alberta with 17 degree highs in Calgary with the rest of the Prairies again today
- Both Regina and Saskatchewan will see showers today which could turn to some flurries/mixed precipitation by tonight
- Meanwhile some lake effect flurries and -5 to -10 wind chills are on tap for Southern Manitoba
- Meanwhile on the front end of the wintery airmass, a cold front has brought quite the temperature change across Ontario - single digit readings for Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal today
- Parts of Northern Ontario are still under a snowfall warning (Geraldton has already seen 5 cm) and snow will continue for areas north and east of Lake Superior today
First dusting for Sault Ste. Marie this morning
