Temperatures remained warmer than normal in the Bulkley Valley and Lakes District in November.
While not a top ten month on record for the region, it was about three degrees warmer than normal.
Things were also dryer than normal for the month according to Environment Canada Meteorologist Derek Lee.
“For precipitation, we saw a total of 32.5 millimetres at Smithers Airport. The normal is 55 millimetres and that translates to about 59% normal,” he said.
He added similar numbers were seen at the Burns Lake Airport for November.
Looking ahead into December, Lee said temperatures are expected to remain cooler so that snow won’t melt away before Christmas.
“Temperatures are still going to be on the cooler side so the snow won’t be all gone once it falls this weekend,” he said.
“A brown Christmas would be an anomaly for sure because then you’d have a very warm storm.”
Yesterday’s (Tuesday) high was 5.4 degrees in Smithers which is supposed to be the warmest temperature recorded for the month.
Lee added the next batch of snow is expected to begin falling Friday night.
