Six days after the near record snowfall, almost all of it is gone except for in the heavily shaded areas. Yesterday was the first day since December 31, 2017 that temperatures went above 5°C, which is some kind of record I think.
As of 10:50 am, the temperature at @iflyCHS has risen above 40 degrees for the first time this year, and for the first time since 8 pm on 12/31! Furthermore, it looks like we won’t fall below freezing for almost another week! Will see lots of melting today. #scwx#gawxpic.twitter.com/UTqC47Km6F
Went out on a quick morning walk to the main road outside the neighbourhood to see what kind of condition it was in.
Still a good bit of snow in the neighbourhood.
Around the neighbourhood, the roads looked pretty clear with a few icy patches.
Up towards the entrance there was still a fair bit of frozen stuff on the road though. Made for a bit of slippery walking.
Out on the main road, it was still pretty icy. Not a lot of exposure to the sun, so there hasn’t been a whole lot of melting on the road, and what melting there has been just freezes overnight.
It’s about 2.5 km out to the main highway from here, and I suspect a few parts of it will be pretty icy. There were a few cars driving down the road, all going pretty slowly. If you take it easy and don’t make any sudden moves, it’s drive-able. Not something I care to venture out into though.
The current forecast high for today is only 1°C and 3°C for tomorrow, so there isn’t going to be much in the way of melting around here until the heat wave starts on Monday and temperatures return to somewhat more seasonal values.
