"Sunshine Coast" Snowfall Warning

Weatheroffice
Sunshine Coast

10:37 AM PST Friday 26 December 2008
Snowfall warning
5 to 15 cm of snow can be expected today

This is a warning that significant snowfall is expected or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions.

A frontal system approaching the coast will bring strong winds and a mixed bag of precipitation today through Saturday. Strong winds up to 90 km/h ahead of the warm front will prevail over the coastal sections of the central coast through this evening.

But when it's done, Powell River will be a winter paradise that can be explored by hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, quads and snowmobiles. Come visit us soon. -- Margy

  21. Your floating cabin and that last shot of the snow covered forest are what my dreams are made of.
    We used to live in Montreal and Vermont and I desperately miss the winters and Triliums in spring and wild strawberries in summer and all those lovely maple leaves in fall. Australia is a great country but a N.Hemisphere girl misses just that, the nature and seasons of the far north.
