Arctic Outflow Hits Metro-Vancouver

2021-02-08

What has been a mild first half of the winter season for the Lower Mainland, will change as Metro-Vancouver will be hit with a blast of cold arctic air. Currently, Cold Arctic air is over northern BC, which will transition over the week towards the BC coast and Vancouver. 

On Tuesday, temperatures will continue to drop as more Arctic air is forced southwards. Strong winds, along with a brisk windchill are then expected to begin Tuesday overnight, with temperatures dropping 5 to 10 degrees below seasonal, marking this week to be the coldest conditions seen so far this winter season.

The average low for this time of season usually sits just above 0°, cities across the region Burnaby, Coquitlam, and Langley may drop to -11° overnight, with only reaching a high of -3° during the daytime. Included in those fridged temperatures is the potential for snow; combing an unstoppable force (Pacific moisture) and an immovable object (Arctic air) could lead to a very over-do snow event.
