A new weather system is expected to result in two centimeters of snow for the Cariboo including 100 Mile House, Williams Lake, and Quesnel today (Thursday, Feb. 7).
“We do have a bit of a system coming through which has brought some cloud, a little bit of snow, and a relief from those really cold temperatures-particularly the really cold overnight temperatures that we were seeing over the last few days,” said Environment Canada meteorologist, Alyssa Charbonneau.
“We definitely noticed that going into this morning.”
Charbonneau said the snow is expected to continue throughout the day today and taper off to light flurries this evening.
She adds while not quite as cold as what we have seen, the temperatures will not return to normal for the foreseeable future.
“We’re going to be seeing the cloud move out tomorrow and clearing out, and then we are looking at a gradual return to some of those cold overnight lows,” Charbonneau said.
“We’re looking at tomorrow a high of about minus 17, overnight still not too bad at minus 21. But those lows by the time we get to next Monday we’re looking at overnight lows once again at minus 27.”
Normals for this time of year are a daytime high of 0 degrees with an overnight low of minus 10.
