With snow flurries predicted on and off in the last few weeks but none materializing, locals would be forgiven for being sceptical of the latest forecast from Environment Canada, which shows snow on the cards for Quesnel on Thursday, Dec. 20.
The current seven-day forecast is predicting periods of snow Thursday and a high of zero degrees Celsius during the day, with snowfall predicted Wednesday night and Thursday night – Thursday with a low of -12.
Could this be the beginning of our winter season, right before the holidays?
Beyond Thursday, the forecast is sunny skies, but according to the weather organization, the temperature will stay cool, which could mean the snow – if it falls – will stick around for Dec. 25. Daytime highs from Friday Dec. 21 to Monday Dec. 24 are between -6 and -8 degrees Celsius, with overnight lows of -12 and -13.
