Long Weekend Forecast a Chilly One

Friday, May 20, 2016 @ 8:56 AM

Prince George, B.C. – For those who are heading out camping for this long weekend,  bring along  warm clothes  and a rain jacket.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Lisa Coldwells says  the blustery conditions  will  continue ” After a whole month  of  above normal temperatures and pretty sunny skies  through April and the beginning of May, and here comes the long weekend and  what’s in store?  The  first significant cold upper low. The last few days have  been certainly cooler and unsettled with  showers, and that’s  how the weekend’s going to start. We’re going to continue on   in this pattern, It’s going to be  mainly  cloudy, there’s going to be a few showers that are going to be around in the afternoon,  it’s cool, it’s blustery, the temperature will only be  about 13 degrees.”

The good news?

Coldwells says   the  system is breaking up “The low is starting to disintegrate, and it’s moving towards  the southern prairies, so as the weekend continues it’s going to  get better, drier and sunnier,  so if you can hang on until Monday,   the forecast looks  pretty lovely  it’s going to be a sunny day with a high of about 23.”

She says there is no place in BC this weekend that  would give  you  warmth ” Actually you would have to leave the province.  It’s a huge  upper low and it’s impacting everything, from  the very northern  regions  all the way through to  the Okanagan.”

Coldwells  says if   camping is  the plan for this weekend “Be prepared for everything Mother Nature can throw at you.  The first part of the weekend, cool,  lots of showers,  and if you are   up high in the  mountains, you might even see some snow towards the Pine Pass.”


Gas prices go up and the temperatures go down. Happy Birthday Queen Victoria. Hahaha

The forecast says plus 16 with a mix of sun and cloud for Saturday. Sunday and Monday sunny weather and plus 18 and 19..that is also from Environment Canada website and it’s pretty decent weather if you ask me. I think the Environment Canada weather lady above needs to go back and check her weather stats or just don’t bother calling them people for anything.

I think someone should check their own forecasts before commenting on the weather outlook. According to all reports it should be a nice weekend. What on earth are you reporting here?
