ski hills suck this yr for snow

that person who says ski hills getting amazing snow is on glue...even whistler's latest revenue is down for less visits (esp during xmas)
cypress only has a base of some 86cm....has been a fabulously mild winter so far.

warm winter

I agree, been a warm almost snowless winter


Can you please explain to me how October is defined as winter? Actually, that's just a rhetorical question. Come on folks, winter don't start till November!

BC Forecast

Your telling lies,their forecasts are wrong in every way for example, they said it was going to be cold on January 1-5 while it e
was freaking 8 degrees! I used to trust them but their forecasts are just plain stupid and the fact that you trust them is mind-boggling.

Bc forcast

Andrew get off the crack they have been spot on !!

BC Forecast

Well if they’re spot on than why did it snow 2 FEET in February when the predictions said it was going to rain? Just face it, the almanac is just dumb and they don’t look at the current forecast.

Southern BC forecast

so we have May starting with weeks of 20C plus weather and night temps around 10C plus with sunny skies as far as the eye can see.
And the Almanac has rain and cold....

The winter weather report for B.C 2019

Your weather forecast is bogus, we are having warm temperatures and there is no snow to be seen. You say that it would be cold in January but instead we are warm. You really should update your weather forecasts regularly so it’s actually right but since I haven’t seen the rest of January I might be wrong but since I trust the weather network more I believe you are wrong and it will not be cold in January because there is no arctic flow so no snow. Please upgrade your weather every week at least so it is right.

updating weather

This is based from a book that is printed and issued the year prior taken from weather patterns from the last 30 years or something. They are not a weather station providing super accurate and up to date forecasts. If you want weather forecasts that are based on "now" and whats really happening, I suggest the weather channel, or weather network. Farmers almanac is based on prediction, its a guess, it's not 100%.

It has been very cold for the month of Feb . - 1° , not too bad during the
day but really cold at night.

We had a mild Dec - Jan and that was nice , kind of cool .

I sure hope it warms up next month
I live in Vancouver , BC .
We hardly had any snow this year compared nearly 2 years ago .
