weather and pain

Here on the coast of B.C., Canada the weather from November to March really affects my back and other parts of my body. I have all over back pain , facial pain - sinus pain - that type of thing. Where when I lived in Montreal. Quebec I never had any of these pains.
What could be the major factor here in B.C. that results in my experiencing so much pain?

The Best Year In History

Does anyone know when the best year in food production was in British Columbian history? I would very much appreciate this information. Thanks!

Below normal temperature and

Below normal temperature and above normal precipitation in Vancouver equals BELOW NORMAL SNOWFALL?! Come on!

Cold and wet

Yes I thought the colder but less snow strange until I read the whole report. Average is colder but April and may much warmer with rain then not snow so over the period of the forecast it is colder but for two heavy precipitation months much warmer. I find these long term forecasts good for general trends but not daily forecast

Jan 2020 guess

Hi there,

You seem educated on the predictions for Southern BC as much as one can have any confidence in predictions. That said, what is your guesstimate percentage on at least decent conditions for mid-January cat skiing in Southern BC? Favorable enough to commit? Thanks!


I believe the mountains near Vancouver such as Whistler BC could have above average snowfall this upcoming winter. Im confused why they predicted Vancouver to be colder than normal with above average precipitation but still have below normal snowfall. Also, I dont think it will be colder than normal for Southern BC because the pacific ocean seems very warm which will influence the west coast causing warmer than average temps and above normal precipitation. I was hoping for a cold winter but climate change is taking that away from me. Anyway, I hope this helped. This was just my opinions on the winter forecast.

Warm Pacific Ocean

Warm Pacific with very cold Arctic front and precipitation=snow. However, I doubt the ocean will be warm enough here to increase the likelihood of snow.

As always, ignore this nonsense about south coast weather predictions and use the US version instead

I guess If the temperature is

I guess If the temperature is 2 degrees below normal that would make the temperature around 4c on average and that most of the time that temp is too warm for it to snow alot. Still doesn't make much sense.

Southern BC Forecast

I just want to say, that so far, your forecast has been bang on for southern BC. The Ski hills are getting amazing snowfall while the valleys are getting more rain/snow showers, and yet it remains warm. The first week of January our temp. did drop just as you predicted. The Weather Network is all over the place, 5 days prior they say one thing, and then 24 hours before the date they change it all again. I have much more faith in your week by week forecast, and always make my travel plans accordingly.

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.
