MOON set against northern sky with sun illuminating snow-capped mountains is testament to the kind of crisp weather in the area these past few weeks

Cold weather continues in Terrace, B.C.

But it will soon turn warmer and snow is forecast by early next week

  • Dec. 16, 2016 12:00 p.m.

ARCTIC outflows bringing cold temperatures reinforced by wind these past few weeks are due to continue today in Terrace and area.

The sun will continue to shine with temperatures of -13 Celsius but with the wind chill, the temperature should be in the -27 Celsius range.

The sun and blue skies means locals have been spared so far this year from shoveling snow, but that is to change as the weekend takes hold.

That’s when Environment Canada is forecasting periods of snow as clouds move in for the weekend and into the next week.

Temperatures will moderate and there could even be rains early in the week.

The lack of snow has pushed back the opening of Shames Mountain but My Mountain Co-op is now saying there’ll be a “soft opening” Saturday with the handle tow in operation on Big Bunny.

“We will prepare a small toboggan area for families to enjoy our winter wonderland,” reads a release from the co-op.
