Massive snowstorm in the cards for Thursday night into the weekend as a big low pressure stalls over BC for the next few days. Expect a meter of snow each day with a total of 5 meters when all is set and done in some spots.

Vancouver - 3 meters
Parksville - 5 meters
Victoria - 2 meters
Bellingham - 3 meters
Chilliwack - 2 meters
Abbotsford - 1 cm of slush

Next week looks cold as the sun vanishes. Expect temps to drop below -70C as the Lower Mainland becomes completely uninhabitable.

Haha. Abbotsford just can’t catch a break.

How are the Euro monthlies looking, assuming you still have access.

All snow maps are way off. Models are too aggressive with the onset of colder air.

Signs are there for a decent pattern for snow lovers down the line. Prominent ridge over 150W looks to be in the cards this NDJ period.


annnnnnnnnnd he's back


Lol.
Lol! Reminds me of that bear commercial it's a classic. It's Halloween he's alive welcome back Mr. Warmcoast!

Last weeks runs were okay. November should be a rather wet month but who knows. The ECMWF weeklies and CFS seem to present blocking in the Northern latitudes and a very distinctive La Nina pattern to end next month.

I put on my snowtires again this year as I feel like we could be in for a few icy/snowy periods.

00z GFS Ensemble runs look much colder than the 12z.

Have had this feeling we are due for a big event sometime in late Dec/early Jan for a while now. Probably just wishful thinking though. ;)
