Arctic Air - No Wind

Normally when the Bella Coola valley sees the Arctic Air that 'burps' out from the cold continental interior of British Columbia, we have some pretty clear signs that it's coming, the most obvious one being the Arctic Outflow winds.  So far as the Arctic air slowly envelops British Columbia and pushes out to the coastal locations we are only seeing the cold clear air.  Later in the week the forecast temperatures are for much colder air to cover us.  Maybe with the twisted weather we have had this winter we might get an Arctic front with cold weather and no outflow winds -- stay tuned for that.

In any case after last night dropped 10 cm of nice dry snow in most of the Bella Coola Valley it was a really nice day today as it gradually cleared and everything was fresh with the new snow.  Grizzly

  1. Hi Grizzly,
    We (in Victoria) finally got some snow last night and just enough to scare my chickens into going back inside. Not enough for sledding and snowpeople, but enough to make us smile!
