FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Temperatures in the Peace will be reaching double-digits this week, but cooler temperatures are on the way for the weekend and next week.

Doug Lundquist, a Meteorologist with Environment Canada, says the temperatures will cool off but remain near or above average for the region. The winter season may be over, but there’s always the possibility that beloved four-letter word could make its appearance known a few more times.

A cold front will be coming through on the weekend, with temperatures reaching the low negatives. Lundquist says there could be a chance of rain or snow Saturday night, which will dissipate with the warmer Sunday afternoon temperatures.

As for future forecasts, Environment Canada does not release anything past 10 days. However, Lundquist does add that the wetter months are usually June and July, with averages of around 66 millimetres and 75 millimetres of precipitation, respectively.
