Special Weather StatementIssued at 04:35 Saturday 28 January 2023
A short cold spell is expected for the B.C. coast.
Arctic air will begin to invade B.C. coastal regions today, with a major shift in temperature from our mild January.
Temperatures will become close to 5 degrees below normal Saturday night through Monday.
Strong outflow winds are also expected through coastal valleys beginning this morning and easing on Sunday. Gusty winds combined with cold temperatures will give low wind chill that will make it feel colder.
Temperatures will gradually rise next week.
If outside, dress warmly in layers. Be prepared for cold temperatures and strong winds. Drive with care, especially along coastal routes exposed to outflow winds.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to BCstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
