The weather has been unseasonably cold in Vancouver for the last week or so. Those used to frigid climates might chuckle at this post but we’re not used to this weather on the west coast. Temperatures have been below freezing continuously for periods over 24 hours. This is quite unusual for Vancouver winters where it might slightly dip below freezing at night but then claw back to positive temperatures in the day time. When it does dip below freezing, it gets really cold, the coldest for this week was minus 8 degrees Celsius, which is summer weather for other parts of Canada.
What also has been bad is that after some snow fall, the traditional rains that come to wash away the flakes did not arrive. Instead, it just iced up and tonight more snow fell. It’s going to be an interesting commute for some Vancouverites tomorrow.
