FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Peace Region may not have to worry about extreme temperatures any time soon.

According to Environment Canada Meteorologist Bobby Sekhon, the Peace Region will see some fluctuating temperatures in the upcoming weeks.

“We’re going to be fluctuating a little bit, we have some warm weather, currently for the next few days. Then, we start to move towards average. As we get into the middle of the month, it’s a little bit more uncertain, it will either continue around the average mark, or we may dip down and see another last blast of arctic air,” says Sekhon.

He mentions that last year, the Peace Region temperature did drop to below -25°C around March 13th and 14th, but mentions that there’s still uncertainty around if that will happen this year.

Sekhon says it’s important to stay tuned to your local forecast, especially during the 24 to 48 hour period. That seems to be when the weather expected can be nailed down, especially with extreme temperatures or any heavy precipitation.

“Generally, we say, the further out, the more the doubt. So as we draw closer to an event, that’s when we have the most certainty compared to when it’s in the long-range”.

Sekhon mentions that if we do get another cold snap, it will be in the -20°C to -30°C range and isn’t likely to get below that.
