You may have already noticed from the lack of snow and temperatures sitting above or at zero, but The Weather Network says the Peace Region is in the warmer-than-average weather this winter.
The first half of winter will see above-normal temperatures with below-normal precipitation, says Meteorologist Nadine Hinds-Powell.
“We’re into an El Niño year, and typically we do get mild conditions heading into winter during an El Niño year, so this above-seasonal expectation isn’t out of the question.” said Hinds-Powell.
She noted that this does not mean that winter is cancelled here in the Peace, and we can expect at least a few great snowfalls and a few cold snaps over the winter — especially the second half.
At this moment, Hinds-Powell says it’s still too early to tell, for sure, when we will see snowfall, or if there will be snow on the ground in time for holidays like Christmas.
