FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – With the winter temperatures already here in northeast B.C., The Weather Network says those temperatures will stay average, but precipitation will be on the rise this year.

The Network says that looking at the next few months, December, January and February, they expect the temperatures to be near normal. Meteorologist Dayna Vettese says snowfall amounts will be above normal.

“Near normal (temperatures) for the Fort St. John/Peace area throughout the winter months but with regard to precipitation, we could see above normal snowfall throughout the winter months.”

Vettese says that last year we saw just over half of the normal snowfall. She estimates that there was only 50 cm last year while the normal amount is between 80-100 cm.

She adds while it has been cold this November, we should see temperatures start to even out fairly soon.
