One Final blast of Winter ahead for North Coast - Inland and coastal regions

Watches and Warnings make for the New Year's Eve forecast

2021 is going to go out with a blast, a wintry blast, as Environment Canada issues a Winter Storm Watch for the North Coast, both for those inland and on the coast.

The Watch which was issued this morning notes of significant snowfall particularly for the Nass Valley, Terrace and Kitimat regions with up to 50 cm of snow possible before the approaching weather maker moves on.

For the Prince Rupert area, the Environment Canada Forecast notes that while we may see some snow on New Year's Eve afternoon, a warming trend over the next few days will bring rain, starting Friday evening and continuing through the weekend.

However, don't put the shovels, salt or ice melt away just yet, the cold temperatures will return to the coastal areas of the North Coast on Monday and through next week
