Above-seasonal temperatures to kick off short work week in Prince George
Rise and shine, Prince George!
After a beautiful Remembrance Day long weekend, another weather shift is expected in the Prince George area this week.

Above-seasonal temperatures are anticipated for today and tomorrow to kick off the short work week with daily highs of five and six degrees expected.

“There is a trough of low pressure moving across the province as we speak so there will be the chance of some showers and wet flurries for Prince George and Vanderhoof this evening as well as tomorrow morning,” said Cindy Yu, Meteorologist with Environment Canada.

“From tonight to Thursday we can expect some precipitation in the forecast but it does look like our ridge will rebuild late this week and into the next weekend.”

“The modified arctic front is going to be dipping down south again and so with that, we are expecting temperatures to start dropping as early as Thursday night and onto Friday where we’re not going to see much cloud cover with overnight temperatures around minus six, minus seven.”

Even with the fluctuations, Prince George is still above the normal for this time of year when it comes to the temperatures.

“Typically, for this time of year, our typical average daytime high should be around the freezing mark. So for all of the days, we’re seeing in the pluses we are above normal and the nighttime temperatures should be around minus six degrees.”

Environment Canada is calling for clouds today with a south 30 km/hr wind gusting to 50. The high is 6 C.

In the evening, the temperature will drop to a low of 1 C and it will be cloudy with a 60 per cent chance of rain showers or flurries.
