Tonight's (Wednesday) Seeing forecast on the eastern Fraser Valley's Clear Sky Charts is the poorest I've ever seen it when combined with near perfect cloud cover and transparency. We're sitting right under the Jet Stream and that might be what's holding this cold weather at bay. Yes, the Real Cold is up at Merritt and beyond.
We'll have to wait and hope for an inversion layer with maybe some fog to steady this clear sky.
