Tie down the Christmas Decorations

Ambitious Rupertites who took advantage of the warm weekend weather to set up their outdoor Christmas Decorations, may wish to make sure that their Santa's, helicopters, Snoopy's and other inflatable and not so inflatable decorations are fully secured by Monday morning.

Environment Canada has issued a Wind Warning for the North coast for Monday, advising of winds gusts of 80 to 100 kilometres through the day, all part of an intense pacific frontal system set to cross over from Haida Gwaii and work its way inland through Monday and into Tuesday.

The forecast calls for rainfall amounts for Prince Rupert to be towards 30 mm by the end of the day, though temperatures on the coast will remain quite mild with a high of 8 expected on Monday.

The frontal system however does promise substantial precipitation further inland, with Stewart expected to receive 30 cm by Monday evening, while Terrace and Kitimat can expect up to 15 cm of snow and perhaps more through Monday.

As the system comes ashore transportation options could suffer for delays and such.

Road conditions will be updated from the Drive BC website, as well BC Ferry Service Notices can be found on the BC Ferry website and Air Canada flight notices out of YVR can be accessed from the YVR website.
