The sky this morning…..even after all the sun we had yesterday very little of the snow melted because it was still cold so lots of it left on the trees.
Raccoon prints in the snow…..
Our local weather report!
WINTER STORM WARNING:
Winter Storm Warning Issued at 05:47 Wednesday 08 February 2017
Hazardous winter conditions are expected.
An intense Pacific warm front will arrive late this afternoon. The front will move in from the south and spread warmer, moist air over the colder Arctic air still in place at the surface.
Snow will start falling this afternoon and become heavy this evening. Blowing snow will further reduce visibilities in some areas. As the warm air establishes itself, there will be a risk of freezing rain tonight especially south of Squamish before the transition to rain. From Squamish to Whistler snow is expected to persist through the night and all day Thursday.
Total snowfall amounts will vary from around 15 cm over southern Howe Sound to 40 to 60 cm between Squamish and Whistler.
In addition, strong northerly winds near 70 km/h will continue over southern sections of Howe Sound.
