A blog about life in the Bella Coola Valley and the Central Coast area of British Columbia for anyone interested in an incredible and rich part of BC's coast. I hope to provide my thoughts about things as simple as weather observations and seasonal issues, to comments about life and the natural history in the Bella Coola Valley, the Central Coast and the west Chilcotin area.

Hard to believe, but it was apparent early this morning that it was going to be a nice day. After my post yesterday, it warmed up a degree in the lower valley and turned to rain which it did till sometime through the night, but not heavy rain. By dawn it was already freezing and the rest of the day just turned out like the picture above!
It's been a different 'fall' so to speak as far as the snow the Bella Coola Valley has received. Not only did we get a significant amount of snow early, it seems to be accumulating and staying more in the upper valley, beyond Noosgulch River to Stuie. There are reports of 45 cm on the ground at Stuie, meanwhile in the lower Bella Coola Valley around Snooka Creek the cows were grazing on bare fields today! The temperature tonight is right at 0 C and Environment Canada is suggesting it will be cooler and sunnier this week. Grizzly
