If you’re planning on heading out tomorrow night, whether it’s to a Halloween party or to go Trick or Treat-ing, you better pack your boots.
After a warm start to Autumn, including all our snow melting by the afternoon, some snow is expected to come our way and stick around.
Weather Network Meteorologist Dayna Vettese described a large pacific system moving onshore, resulting in Fort St. John seeing snowfall of 2-4 cm tomorrow night.
She continued to say winds of 15 km/hr will be present, and Fort St. John a high of 1° before the temperature drops down to -2° during the night.
“I think we’d all prefer a milder Halloween, but it looks like we’ll have temperatures around the freezing mark for trick or treat time and there will be snow in the air,” she said.
The sun is expected to set at 5:24 PM MST on Halloween night, and it is recommended people going out wear reflective gear to be seen in the dark – especially young Trick or Treaters.
Vettese said the snow should stick around for a few days next week, and while the first week of November is expected to start on the cool side, it will likely rise above freezing by the end of next week.
