Weather to ‘Get a Little Worse Before It Gets Better’ – Environment Canada
Prince George, B.C. – It appears the cold snap gripping Prince George and much of the province is going to last a while longer.
In fact, Environment Canada warns “things are going to get a bit worse before it gets better.”
“What we have here is a ridge of high pressure that’s sitting in the Yukon and extending all the way down to the U.S. – Idaho,” says meteorologist Jonathan Bau. “Unfortunately, that ride of high pressure isn’t going anywhere for the next week.”
For Prince George, he says that means temperatures falling to as low as the minus 30s for overnight lows by the middle of next week and highs “struggling to hit minus 20.”
However, Bau says there is a glimmer of good news on the horizon.
“The long-range models are suggesting bit of a warm up – it’s all relative of course. So, for the following week leading up to Christmas, we’re starting to see temperatures moderate a little bit with highs ranging maybe to the minus 10 degrees range and lows to minus 20.”
