A dry Arctic airmass over southern BC will result in a sunny cold start to Tuesday. By afternoon clouds will be on the increase and by early evening snow will begin as a storm approaching the BC coast sends a strengthening SW flow of moist, mild, Pacific air over top of the arctic airmass now in place. Periods of snow will likely continue through Tuesday night then end Wednesday morning as the SW flow aloft becomes strong enough to produce a subsidence break over the resort. A trailing cold front may bring another burst of snow to the resort late in the day on Wednesday. Light SE winds on Tuesday will become moderate and gusty S to SW winds Tuesday night and Wednesday as the storm system crosses central BC. Temperatures will remain cold Tuesday with highs on the slopes near minus 12 C. The strong S to SW flow will result in a rapid rise in temperatures on Wednesday as the arctic air is eroded out of the valley and is replaced by a mild Pacific airmass. Temperatures are now forecast to rise to near minus 3 C at mid-mountain and above zero on the lower slopes by Wednesday afternoon.
Thursday to Saturday: A lingering surface trough over southern BC will bring mainly cloudy skies and scattered flurries to the resort throughout the period. Temperatures will trend a little cooler with daytime highs on the slopes near minus 5 C on Thursday and down to about minus 8 by Saturday. Gusty winds are possible on Thursday then lighter winds for Friday and Saturday.
