If that was onshore flow, it was extraordinarily cold onshore flow. Sub freezing highs and heavy snowfall happened well before that arctic blast. Models look much warmer than that right now.

I'm trying to be optimistic here. :lol: The timing is right to roughly coincide with 1996.

Checking back....I see YVR had a string of days(20th-24th) with snow with temps hovering around 0C. I'm assuming we saw a couple coastal sliders pass thru.

It does. I still like our chances later in January

I actually like fog believe it or not. I just find it cool, especially when you go higher and its sunny but you can see the fog below. I love heading up Sumas Mountain during inversions. Super pretty.
