Enjoy the clear, sunny skies while you can, Vancouver, because we’re in for quite an interesting week otherwise. Along with a significant temperature drop starting Wednesday, February 22nd, the city has some snow in the forecast for this weekend – up to 15 cm, to be exact.
According to The Weather Network, Vancouverites can expect freezing temperatures of 0 to 4 degrees celsius all week. And starting Saturday, February 25th, “scattered flurries” and “light snow” are in the forecast.
In a recent report, TWN elaborates on the colder-than-usual weather expected to hit BC over the next week, and how to best prepare.
“B.C. and Alberta are getting a stormy start to the week, thanks to a powerful Pacific low, which will be followed by a blast of Arctic air.” Metro Vancouver residents should prepare themselves for “gusty winds” and possible power outages, according to the report.
“In the Lower Mainland, frigid temperatures are expected to last from Tuesday until Friday, according to Environment Canada,” says another report.
A potent low is powering across B.C. with heavy alpine snow and potentially damaging winds. Even western sections of Metro Vancouver could gust to 70 km/h, leaving the risk for power outages. #BCstorm #BCwx https://t.co/CqNkYq9vZJ
