Crank up the furnace, it’s going to get cold

It’s been snowy, now get ready for the cold.

A period of very cold wind chills is expected throughout the central interior later today. Environment Canada has issued an extreme cold warning for the area.

A bitterly cold arctic ridge of high pressure will remain entrenched over the area for several days. North winds near 20 km/h in Williston and 40 km/h in Prince George and Stuart-Nechako will create wind chill values near -40 degrees Celsius beginning tonight.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
