Environment Canada issues Arctic Outflow Warning for North Coast Inland areas

Weather Alerts issued for North Coast/Central Coast Inland areas

Strong outflow winds overnight are going to make for a very dramatic drop in temperature values for the Inland areas of the North Coast.

Environment Canada issued an Arctic Outflow Warning this afternoon,  advising that the strong winds combined with cold air will provide for wind chill values of near -20 overnight.

Tomorrow's high for the Terrace-Kitimat area is 11 degrees, with snow in the forecast for the remainder of the week.

Arctic Outflow warning issued Saturday Afternoon

Temperatures for Prince Rupert are a little less extreme, with overnight lows of-4 expected

The Warning comes as the Cold Arctic air is soon to meet a Pacific Front that will be arriving on Monday, providing for warmer temperatures but precipitation for the North Coast inland and coast areas.

Sunday's forecast for the North Coast calls for flurries changing to rain or wet snow, with the potential for a snowfall amount of 2 cm.

The rain arrives Monday, with the temperatures rising through the week to 7 above by Friday

You can review more on the Weather ahead from the forecast page from the Environment Canada website.
