Frigid conditions in the Fraser Valley to persist this week

Watch out for Wednesday night in some areas where wind chill values could approach minus 20

Get out the wool socks. Wednesday could be one of the coldest nights this winter in the Fraser Valley.

The Arctic air coming from the Interior is still on the move throughout B.C. The mercury is set to dip again in the next 24 hours, according to the special weather statement from Environment Canada that went in effect 5 a.m. on Tuesday (Feb. 9).

Frigid conditions will persist the rest of the week but watch out for Wednesday night (Feb. 10) in particular.

“Arctic outflow warnings are possible for the Fraser Valley, the Sea to Sky corridor and the Central Coast beginning Wednesday night as wind chill values approach minus 20,” according to the weather statement.

Most of the B.C. coast has enjoyed mild winter conditions in 2021, but the recent Arctic air arrival marked a transition to much colder conditions.
