Snowfall warnings for northern sections of B.C.

If you have been enjoying crisp but clear weather, there is lots more of it ahead, says CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe.
 
The strong ridge of high pressure continues to dominate the weather across southern B.C. right through to early next week, keeping skies mainly clear and overnight temperatures in the sub-zero range.

Last night, the Vancouver airport got down to -4 C, and 10 km/h winds were enough to make it feel like -8 C with the wind chill. There is a slight recovery in temperatures over the next few days — going from afternoon highs of 4 C today, to 7 C by Sunday.

Meanwhile, Pacific moisture continues to stream over east-central British Columbia, where 40 cm of snow has already fallen in Stewart. Snowfall warnings remain in place for 10 to 20 cm more accumulation over the next 24 hours.

The arctic air mass that was in place across northern and central B.C. is retreating, so the extreme wind chills in Prince George are over for the time being.

Catch Johanna's full forecast on CBC News Vancouver at 5 and 6.
