Another 5-10 Centimeters of Snow Expected

Friday, February 10, 2017 @ 11:32 AM

Prince George, B.C.-   Prince George  received  between 15 and 20 centimeters of snow overnight,  and the  snowfall warning remains in effect  says Environment Canada  Meteorologist Alyssa Charbonneau.“That band of snow is still sitting over Prince George,  so the snowfall warning is still in effect,  as  there  could be another 5 to 10 centimeters  before it tapers off this afternoon.”

But then,   the rest of the long  weekend should be pretty good  says Charbonneau.  “The snow is expected to taper off  to just a 30% chance of flurries this afternoon.. .Then that 30% overnight and into tomorrow, shouldn’t bring too much more  accumulations.  Then we have  a ridge  of high pressure  building in.  We’ll see some sun and the temperatures are rising  above freezing.”

She says the forecast for Sunday looks pretty good,   with some cloud,  but milder temperatures “We’re looking at a high of plus of three.”

The  band of snow  has caused some  delays in  flights  in and out of the Prince George Airport,  as always,  check  with  your airline before heading to the airport,  and allow some extra travel time to the airport because of road conditions.



Geez what a bunch of melons! Why not just stay in the background and not obviously report the obvious! Man, I would like to know their wages.

    “Environment Canada”? Wages? I’m sure that they are more than adequate, especially for a job where it’s acceptable to be wrong as often as you are right, haha!

      Be fair Hart Guy. Their job also includes stating the obvious.

Man…it’s going to be messy in town next week with all the snow melt.

Amazing what a pair of sunglasses do for a day like today.
Takes the whiteout, out LOL.
