Earlier today (October 22nd), residents in the Cariboo may have woken up to some wet snowfall.
Dave Wray, Meteorologist for Environment Canada says that our current weather is more of what we should be seeing.
“Definitely a significant change from what we’ve been used to over the last couple of months. I would say we’re more into a typical fall pattern, and temperatures have decreased fairly significantly, I would say actually closer to seasonal norms.”
“Of course it seems cooler, because it’s been so warm.”
Wray also noted that he thinks we’re through the warmest period of the year, as we had a long stretch of it. He says we can expect a fall-like pattern with some wet snow.
As the month progresses, the Cariboo will start to see the evenings hit below zero temperatures.
