More Cold & Clear Where That Came From...Nov 20th
- Cold enough for ya? Temperatures got down to -2 at YVR last night, making it the coldest night since Jan 13th!
- And even though winds were only ~10 km/h this am, it brought a wind chill reading of -6 to Vancouver for a few hours this morning.
- Our cold high pressure ridge will remain in place for the rest of the week and into the weekend meaning more cold overnights but clear afternoons
- Temperature across Vancouver will get up to 3-5 degrees this afternoon, but will once again dip down to -2 to -3 overnight. Winds are relatively light though today
- Few clouds may add to the sky tomorrow morning and there is a low chance of morning fog tomorrow morning and into the weekend in a few sheltered valleys
- Temperatures rebound by a degree or two for the weekend but it will still be below seasonal in the afternoon and sub-zero overnight right through to early next week.
- At this point, long range models are keeping high pressure in place for the long haul which could mean dry weather for the next week!
OK But it's REALLY Cold in the Prairies
- Much of Alberta & Saskatchewan woke up to -30 wind chills today, and a few more cm of snow for some too
- Temps will be dropping today for Manitoba, joining the -30 wind chill club
- Arctic air will remain in place for SK & MB for the next couple of days but temperatures may just rebound by a good 15-20 degrees to a balmy zero just in time for the Grey Cup in Regina on Sunday
- The Arctic airmass is pushing east, and Ontario/Quebec are in for sub-zero highs starting this weekend, along with snowsqualls.
