south central bc weather

this year holds the fourth place record for most snow fall recorded in the kamloops to williams lake bc region.
here's hoping the almanac is off for the spring and we get slightly warmer weather.

F.A.weather forecast for February,Southern BC is way off.

The Farmer's almanac is way off for February in southern BC. First of all, there has been almost non-stop rain since Jan. And in February, when it did finally stop, it was cold. Now huge snowfall, almost blizzard-like and cold temperatures, in the coast .


Extremely cold in the West Kootenays feels like -20 at times, in mid- to the third week of February

February weather in bc is not accurate for farmers almanac

Lots more snow and very cold in Southern BC for February

Not very accurate this year

Previously we were able to buy the regional forecast for SW BC for $4.95. I understand there is a new system. Even if it’s the same price I don’t need the entire book, and this year the forecast is not very accurate. Today is the week ending April 7 and we were supposed have sunny and cool weather. Instead in Vancouver it rained every day and only on Friday did the sun peek out for a few hours. Also February had more snow than December. Maybe modeling the weather for the late 1960’s, when the solar minimum was comparable to now, would be helpful.
