Victoria is so far south of the Lower mainland that the snow hit them and missed us. Victoria is about the same latitude as Mt. Vernon, Washington.

Plus, the winds are blowing the shit south.

Was on I5 last night, pretty intense

Where 2 foot of snow was dumped very quickly near Mount Vernon. Highway came to standstill, people abandoning cars, etc..

Actually detoured and went Route 11. Nice long scenic drive, too bad didn't take pictures.

Expect it to feel like it's minus 20 tonight
Windchill forecast to bring record-cold
Andrea Macpherson/660 News Feb 24, 2011 10:36:11 AM

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - The windchill will make minus nine feel a lot colder this evening. It's expected to feel as cold as minus 20; that record-cold will definitely make you feel the arctic air with every breath you take.

News1130 meteorologist Russ Lacate tells us, "Two factors really heighten the threat of record-cold tonight."

"First off, this deep layer of arctic air could push temperatures down to minus 10 all by itself," he explains. "But the north wind, gusting gale force, will instantaneously evaporate any humidity on your skin, causing your body to lose heat as quickly as it would with an equivilant temperature of 20-below."
