Couple Snowy Days Ahead for Vancouver Before Mid-Week Warm-Up...Dec 9th

  • After a frigid, but sunny weekend, we trade the arctic wind chills for light snow over the next couple of days
  • High pressure still dominates offshore, but it is directing Pacific moisture in from the northwest. Light snow/snow grains began for much of Vancouver around 9 am this morning and will continue on and off through to tomorrow afternoon for the south coast
  • YVR has picked up trace amounts and parts of Vancouver could see around 2 cm accumulations by this evening. Another 2 cm through the overnight and tomorrow morning as the moist northwesterly flow persists.
  • Temps will be hovering around -1 to +1 today & tomorrow so freezing drizzle, snow grains will lead to slippery roads 
  • The weather pattern changes again starting Tuesday evening. A significant Pacific frontal system will finally spread substantial precipitation to central and northern BC early Wednesday. 
  • Still some uncertainty in the models but looks like the precip gets to the south coast for Wed afternoon. At this point though, milder air will begin to move in - snow will likely change over to rain through Wednesday
  • From Wednesday onward we are back to seasonal temps of 4-7 degrees but that comes with a more typical, stormy pattern. Soggy outlook for the end of the week and weekend

Prairies Still in the Deep-Freeze
  • After a brief break from the extreme cold yesterday and today in Alberta, temps are plunging again tonight and tomorrow along with fresh snow. 
  • Below minus 30 wind chills expected for Alberta along with 10-20 cm of snow for the foothills and blowing snow across S Ab & S SK
  • Meanwhile, much of SK & MB remain in the below minus 35 wind chill range today  
  • Some recovery in the forecast for BC & SK this week - getting back up to zero by Wed/Thu...but no recovery in the near future for Manitoba! Staying in below -20 temps all week.
