There have not been any significant changes to the seasonal forecasts for this winter.
The long-term forecasts by Environment Canada and NOAA (USA) continue to predict a warmer than average winter.
El Nino conditions are neutral (B.C. tends to get less precipitation during El Nino and more during La Nina), meaning that there is no strong trend for above or below normal precipitation (although either could still occur).
Snow is just beginning to accumulate on valley snow stations.
