An Encore Deep Freeze for Prince Rupert, North Coast, Northwest

Sunny Skies but very cold temperatures make for the forecast
for the first week of 2022

After a few days of warming temperatures over New Years, we plunge back into the deep freeze today with temperatures working their way downwards 

Earlier this morning, Environment Canada issued an Arctic outflow for the North Coast calling for windchills of near Minus 20 with the warning in effect through to at least Friday.

The quick freeze could mean some of the water from the weekend melt will make for dangerous walkways and driveways, while some preventive maintenance inside the home could help avoid frozen plumbing lines as the week of cold temperatures arrives from the Arctic.

The start of the week will be colder than the end of it, particularly today and tomorrow when the cold air mass is propelled by winds of up to 100 km both days.

Daytime temperatures moderating by Saturday to Zero, though that bring the prospect of more snow.

Things will improve significantly in the temperature on Sunday as the temperatures zoom above zero to daytime highs of 5 degrees next week.
