This has really been an unusually mild winter for the Robson Valley in the Interior of BC. First we failed to have our usual “White” Christmas, something I have never experienced in my 40 years of living here. Since then we did get snow, but the temperatures have remained abnormally mild. The photo which I took yesterday shows some standing water on top of the ice on my pond, a result of our above freezing temperatures.
Today’s forecast calls for a high of 0 Celsius (32F) and a low tonight of -5C (23F). The temperatures we experience are usually warmer than what is in the forecast, so I suspect it will climb above freezing during the day. The normal temperatures for this day are a high of -5C (23F) and a low of -15C (5F).
An article I read said that the mid-section of North America is about to experience a “Polar Vortex” producing very cold temperatures as we move into February. It does not sadden me that we are supposed to remain mild and miss it here.Note: Now at midday the temperature outside is +6C (42F)
