“The cold front will race across the Central Interior Thursday afternoon and then stall across the Southern Interior in the evening. Strong winds with gusts as high as 80 km/h will develop across the Central Interior in the morning then spread to the Southwest Interior in the afternoon”  reads the statement.

Environment Canada  advises  the front will be accompanied by “Locally heavy precipitation.”    There is also an advisory that ” Snow will develop over the Columbias in the morning and then spread to the Kootenays. Rising snow levels, however, will cause the snow to change to rain over most of the Kootenay regions in the afternoon.”

Further updates on this storm will be forthcoming.


a cold front? in the middle of November? who da thunk. thank god for environment Canada

cool timing, more excuses to stay in and play fallout 4

You do know that cold and warm fronts happen any time of the year don’t you.

Weather report at the top of this page says high of plus 5C and 2 cm of snow for Thursday. Am I missing something here?

That’s why it’s called A Special Weather Statement people!! There are NO warnings and at least 250 News did it right unlike MyPGNOW who has issued a weather warning. Media in PG really needs to figure out how the weather works and when to issue the necessary information and not just make crap up.

Ya what you missed is the low of minus 1 with the snow changing to rain.
