Prince George, B.C. – If you thought the past three months in Prince George were abnormally warm, you’d be right.

“Over the entire three months (December, January, February), averaged together, what we should have is an average temperature of minus 6.7,” says Environment Canada meteorologist Lisa Coldwells. “Prince George came out with minus 3.9, making it the fourth warmest since records started in 1942.”

Moving forward, she expects the unseasonably warm temperatures to continue.

“That broad scale upper ridge that’s been sitting over most of B.C. for a good portion of this winter is not going to change.”

As a result, Coldwells says other than a small weather system which may bring a few wet flurries tomorrow and Thursday, the weekend is looking to be sunny and warm with highs to 10 degrees.

“As the big upper ridge holds steady for early March we’ll see above normal temperatures and below level precipitation.”
