Tonight: The average temperature around the valley is 1 C.

Will the sun come out tomorrow? Yes! It’s going to be a sunny 15 C Tuesday, but then you need to brace yourself for soggy days. So far Wednesday through Sunday are forecast to be rainy.

On the roads and mountains:. There are no highway alerts in effect but there’s still snow on them thar hills. Big White is reporting 13 centimetres of fresh snow in the last seven days. Also, did you know the resort is planning to develop its east peak. April Fool’s?

Over at Silver Star it’s the last week of the ski season, and conditions are going to be really varied.

Fun fact:

There’s a lake legend called Shuswagi and a couple of YouTube fishermen have caught it on video. Mind you, it’s April 1, so who knows?
