An Arctic Blast

Here on BC’s South Coast we have been enjoying reasonably comfortable temperatures hovering around freezing with on/off snowfall for a couple of days and more to come this week. 

However, most of the Province has been blasted with bone-chilling cold temperatures as an arctic outflow comes down from the North.  The Southern Interior cities of Kelowna and Kamloops will be dropping to –19C and –23C respectively while the town of Dease Lake in the north of the Province will be cooling down to a rather chilly –40C (which interestingly is also –40 in Fahrenheit)  - and what’s more, that’s not taking into account wind chill !

Roll on Spring…….
