Back in November when we had Outflow #1, I commented that in my humble opinion Arctic Outflows in the Bella Coola Valley ended in one of three possible ways. Those were; 1. It just warms up and the wind stops and you suddenly feel really comfortable outside again, 2. It turns to freezing rain and there is a miserable coating of ice or 3. We get a huge dump of snow usually measured in feet.
This one had a modified #3 ending - the wind stopped, the temperatures have warmed this evening to a very comfortable -6 c and we have had 10-15 cm of dry snow since this morning. Tomorrow it is supposed to get warmer, but it looks like a bit of a break between now and another weather system. Grizzly
A place in our hearts
