A U.S. weather forecasting company is predicting a very cold winter for B.C. and Alberta this winter, but it is far from clear if that means more or less snow for West Coast ski resorts.
“This winter could be one of the top three coldest winters in the past 20 years for Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia,” according to the long term forecast issued by Pennsylvania-based Accuweather.
The company’s senior meteorologist Brett Anderson is forecasting the region will see temperatures as much as five degrees lower than normal as several arctic air masses slide down through British Columbia and Alberta this coming winter.
“Edmonton, Alberta, will likely be in the deep freeze for the fifth consecutive winter,” said the forecast.
