Whistler gets first snowfall of the season

This year's La Nina is expected to bring plenty of powder to the mountains

Heading to Whistler for the long weekend? Then you might want to pack warmly. 

Whistler Blackcomb got about three centimetres of snow in the high-alpine areas of the mountain resort overnight.

Sarah Morden, a spokeswoman for the ski resort, says the light dusting was the first accumulation of the season. 

"You can feel the shift in the season happening here," she said.

"Definitely, the autumn leaves are changing colour, and the snowfall just solidifies that."

CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe says the snowfall in September isn't unusual. 

The higher elevation snow is the result of a cold, low-pressure system spinning in the upper atmosphere. It's the same one that brought the cool and rainy weather to Vancouver these past few days, said Wagstaffe.

However, the low pressure system is slowly tracking toward Alberta, so she added there isn't likely to be more fresh powder this weekend.

La Nina likely means more snow

After a summer of El Nino-related weather, B.C. is now expected to experience the effects of La Nina, which could bring with it unusually cool ocean temperatures.

That means a lot of snow for the mountains. 

"La Nina seasons have meant abundant winter snowfalls with the snowiest seasons," Morden added, saying there is lots of buzz and excitement for upcoming season.

"Everyone is waiting with bated breath."

Snowmageddon 2017!

Snowmageddon 2017? That Is If You Follow the Farmers Almanac

The Long Range Weather Forecast has been released by The Old Farmer’s Almanac and it’s looking great for snow lovers!

They are predicting near to above normal snowfall and frigid conditions. The end of November is looking the snowiest along with Mid-January and early February. As far as temperatures go, we are warned to brace ourselves for the teeth chattering temperatures during the months of January and February for the Northeast and Midwest. A wet and rainy Winter is in the forecast across the Pacific Northwest, but plenty of warmer than average days expected across the South!

Now, it’s up to you to decide if you will be following The Old Farmer’s Almanac Long-Range Weather Forecast which has been predicted for hundreds of years. The almanac is based on a secret formula that founder, Robert B. Thomas, designed using solar cycles, climatology, and meteorology. It claims to have an 80 percent accuracy rate so the choice is yours! Nonetheless, stay warm this winter!
