5-10 cm of Snow Expected Saturday – Environment Canada
Prince George, B.C. – Don’t pack up those shovels and snow blowers quite yet, another burst of winter is headed our way.
“You’ve got to hang on a little bit longer,” confirms Alyssa Charbonneau, a meteorologist with Environment Canada. “We still have some snow in the forecast coming up with maybe 5-10 centimetres tomorrow.”
Along with the snow, temperatures have been below normal for this month too.
“Regional normals for this time of year would be a high near plus six and a low of minus five and as we look back to the beginning part of this month you’ve been below normal almost every single day except for March 2 when you hit a maximum of 5.9 degrees.”
But she says that will all soon change.
“Yes, we have a change in the weather pattern that’s going to start to kick in the very end of this weekend and into next week,” says Charbonneau. “We’re going to move into a flow that’s bringing sort of southwesterly mild air off the Pacific and we’ll be bringing that through to the Interior of B.C. So, temperatures are forecast to start rising and we even have a plus 10 in the forecast for Wednesday.”
