The Most Insane Neknomination In History. Snow Poisoning Is Likely.

 

First, before I forget I'm running an exclusive twitter contest. If you RT this tweet to the right, and #YVR receives 5 cm of snow you'll win a spiffy T-shirt. Simple as that. No Catch.

Now.

The snow situation.

Prepare to be kind of disappointed... for the lowlands.

 

A good old mini dump 'n wash is on tap. Previous post I highlighted possible amounts.

One high resolution model that's had a pretty good track record lately is the HRRR, and below is a simulated radar reflectivity map of the next 15 hours. Check it out below:

Want to plan an evening walk in the snow? Here's a good first place to start. First significant band of snow will move into the Lower Mainland between 11-12am. Many neighbourhoods will turn into winter wonderlands, albeit briefly.  Blues: Snow Pinks: Ice/Freezing Rain (note eastern Fraser Valley) Greens, Oranges: Rain

It'll be very interesting to see if it's plain rain by 6 am, like some weather models are advertising. Sometimes, models get a little too excited during these overrunning events, and cold air sticks a round a little longer than first thought.

Tomorrow I'll talk about the potential for high precipitation amounts later in the week, and yes, endless amounts of powder for those who like to hang out over 1200 metres above sea level. 

Speaking of Powder...

I want to send out a #Neknomination to Mother Nature and Ullr.

YOU both have 24 hours to drink (dump) as much powder on the ski hills as possible. No, I don't care if you get snowfall poisoning. This is important.

Enjoy your Family Day weekend and the Olympic coverage everyone.

Go Canada! With Glowing Hearts.
