Weekend May See Snow in P.G.

Friday, October 7, 2016 @ 11:06 AM

Prince George, B.C. –  There  is  a strong likelihood that Prince George will see its first snow flakes  of the season before this holiday is  weekend is through.Environment Canada Meteorologist Matt MacDonald says some  snow  has  already been spotted  “Temperatures are really going to take a dip over the next few days, in fact  it was actually snowing this morning just west of  Prince George, with snow fall in  Fort Fraser and Burns Lake,  but luckily it’s going to stay all liquid today for Prince George , there could be some overnight periods of flurries.”

He says  the weekend could bring some snow to P.G “We could see some accumulations, not much, maybe one or two centimeters, but a good reminder for folks to put their snow tires on and get ready for winter.”

Anyone travelling this weekend will want to know the  cut off  line for snowfall is  south of Prince George   “as you start to move your  way south to Quesnel  and into Clinton, the precipitation there will be falling as rain,   as you head north, the conditions will be worse as you move into the Peace country.”

He says  the lows will be chillier than normal for this time of year ” Overnight lows this weekend   could be in the minus 7 range Saturday night,  which is a  full 9 degrees lower than usual for this time of the year”  but there is good news “Sunday and Monday  you ( Prince George) have one of the better forecasts in the province.  Monday  will see a high of 6 degrees,  although it will be cooler in the morning, so you  should watch out for black ice. But  Monday afternoon the  sun will be out in full force.”




NO, nada, not allowed, denied,

I am seeing snow now waaa!

Roof of the car is white with snow right now, we are inside city limits…

time to pray for no snow

Drive safely everyone! Wet roads and near freezing temperatures are a bad mix for black ice! Please be careful!

Remember that as grumpy as we all tend to get once in a while on this site, we all have family who want us to come back!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Brrrr, maybe Suzuki and his eco-nut followers 1970’s prediction of “we are headed to another ice age” is coming true!!
