Weather in the West Kootenays (Nelson, BC)

So far this fall/winter generally speaking, Farmer's Almanac has been pretty close In its predictions. It has been above normal precipitation--mostly in the form of rain and hovering between -2 and 3 C (sometimes up to 5 or 6 C). Pretty awesome weather this year. Far less snow shoveling compared to years previous in my opinion. I remember a few years back where it would drop to -18 sometimes. There has been a definite shift. Seems to me the skier's are getting what they want too.....

Regional descriptions

The Southern region of British Columbia is too large and generalized. Prince George and Cranbrook are totally different from Vancouver. Vancouver is closer to the Pacific Northwest description for weather.

Incorrect forecast so far

This years forecast has been incorrect so far. Despite the La Niña it’s been close to seasonal for most of November and December so far. This could change in January and February so we’ll have to wait and see. La Niña is taking its time this year or just decided to hide.

On Hold

The Editors's picture

Hi, Jeff, and John below: Yes, things have been a little tricky this year so far, but we still have a lot of winter to go. On average, we’re usually about 80 percent correct, so let’s all watch carefully and see if we are once again this year! Thank you both for commenting!

so far it’s wrong

Precipitation has been lower, temperatures warmer than ever. No major snowfall yet (Already near middle of December). I predict a late winter and maybe 1-2 snowfalls in the lower mainland at best.

Its the weather.

I am actually amazed how accurate the long range forecast is. It may not be bang on on day to day but being written and predicted well over a year ago the Farmers Almanac long range weather forecast is in the ball park. The t.v. weather casters for having the latest tech to predict forecasts day to day are about as correct and I swear their long range forecasts are sometimes taken from here word for word.

july weather in South BC

It has been one of the coolest summer so far. Last year was bad as well.... looks like all the nice warm weather has been shipped up north and back east....... all the predictions have been wrong

summer

I hope the predictions continue to be wrong in the right way!

South BC Summer Forcast

I just went to the weather network and read their summer weather prediction and it is so far off of what is actually happening its laughable. I come here and it seems to be almost spot on. So much for a network with billions of dollars of equipment being able to tell what's going on.

It's been cold for 2 years

Ever since the end if the last big fires Sept. 2018 its been cold and rainy/snowy here in southern bc. I pay attention to the weather and my memory is sharp. 1st July right now, probably 8 degrees and raining all day. It has not been usual weather for the area. It used to be sunny everyday around here this time of year for as long as I can remember.
Something switched that's for sure. We will take it instead of forest fires but what was the deal with those coming on so strong all of a sudden as well? Things are a foot and the earth don't seem to happy anymore, not good.
