Christmas is expected to be a cold one for both the Bulkley Valley and Lakes District, according to Environment Canada.
Both areas are anticipating a low near the minus 30’s.
According to Meteorologist Doug Lundquist, boxing day morning could be the coldest for the week.
Lundquist said he doesn’t expect records to be broken.
“For this time of year the records are in the minus 35 to 40 degree range so, we’re forecasting minus 30, it is a really cold air mass moving in over us,” he said.
Lundquist also said a snow event is scheduled for Tuesday (Dec 21).
“Two to five centimetres of snow, maybe more in places out towards Prince George even more, it be more like five to ten or 20 in high terrain areas,” he said.
Environment Canada is also reminding those out in the weather to dress appropriately and to take your time while driving.
Daytime highs are expected to reach minus 14 and minus 12 for Tuesday (Dec 21) and Wednesday (Dec 22).
