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.

An interesting weather pattern this week has the clouds moving over the Bella Coola Valley today in an almost northerly direction, virtually going straight over the valley moving north, instead of the common flow from the west. It must be bringing a lot of mild air from southern latitudes with it, because it's staying well above zero, partially clear and almost no wind down in the valley. With a high temperature of 9 C today at the Bella Coola Airport , and bare ground from the Salloomt area all the way to North Bentinck Arm, one could be lulled into thinking winter is slipping behind us, but don't be tricked -- February can be an interesting month around here as well.
