Partly cloudy and +5 just after lunch in DT Victoria.

Forecast was for a mix of sun and cloud with high of +8, but that has been revised down to +5, although some areas are already seeing +7 (Langford) to +9 (Sooke).

Had the heat off all day thanks to the sun and a milder temperature.

-12C with a wind chill of -15C and overcast. Thank god for those clouds to "moderate" the temperature a little. Only 7C below normal today.

Today were the first double digit highs for 2018 in the country, Stevely, AB and Port Mellon, BC at 10.5C.

Not much going on in Vancouver weather-wise. No rain but continuing with overcast, misty, foggy skies and cool steady temperatures. Pretty benign and pleasant all things considered.

Wednesday's high at Vancouver Harbour was 4 C, the low was 2 C.



Vancouver, Jan.3 '18, my pics

The Bomb Storm will hit Moncton around 11 am and it goes until Friday. Hazardous winter conditions are expected with blowing snow and hurricane winds.

Roads are dry right now. I bet most business and day-cares will open this morning and wait until it gets really bad to close. They like to send their employees and kids home in the peak of the blizzard rather then tell them to be safe and stay home.

-11C right now as that storm displaces the cold onto us. It'll be 8C by this time tomorrow.

Sunny but brutally cold. Winds haven't arrived yet but it's going to be a rough one. 110 km/hr gusts for YYT.

Maximum sustained winds in Moncton will be 50 kph, gusting to about 90 kph.

Blizzard like conditions this afternoon, then transitioning to rain this evening and overnight. The overnight high temperature will be about +5C.

Maybe about 25 cm of snow and 10 mm of rain expected.

Moncton may actually be in the sweet spot with this storm - more snow to the west of us, but considerably windier to the east.

180 kph gusts in Wreckhouse - amazing........

It's a monster storm now.



Notice the visible snow left on the ground behind it from Georgia to the Carolinas.

Truth be told, we are super-warned (some might say over-warned) compared to how we used to be even 10 years ago.

Though sure, that is a pretty big storm.

Well, this was marketed as some kind of mega-blizzard but right now it's +3 in Halifax with no snow on the ground and the rest of the storm is expected to bring "rain at times heavy" and temperatures rising to +9. It looks like the kind of tropical storm that NS typically gets once or twice a year, except later in the season (or earlier depending on how you want to look at it). I'm not sure how it's worse than a blizzard or an ice storm. If the power is going to go out I'd rather it be +6 than -10 or -20.

Most of NS isn't very flood prone so heavy rain and storm surges don't do much. It is not like Florida.

The potential for high winds is the most significant part of the storm due to the risk of power outages. However one thing to keep in mind is that the wind speeds cited are often registered in exposed coastal locations.
