Cold temperatures for viewing the “Wolf Moon” Thursday

Clear skies and cold temperatures with the full “WOLF MOON” Thursday Jan 12

Full Wolf Moon – January Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. Thus, the name for January’s full Moon. Sometimes it was also referred to as the Old Moon, or the Moon After Yule.

The full moon of January 2017 is blazing brightly in the skies tonight (Jan. 11).

The moon technically reaches its full phase tomorrow morning (Jan. 12) at 6:34 a.m. EST (1134 GMT), but skywatchers can get an eyeful of an apparently full lunar orb both tonight and tomorrow night. The Slooh Community Observatory will air a live webcast about the January full moon at this evening at 8:30 p.m. EST (0130 on Thursday).

Cold temperatures

Arctic air will again pour out of the B.C. Interior on Tuesday.

The Weather Network is forecasting evening lows of -21°C Tuesday night into the early hours of Wednesday.

Environment Canada is being a little bit more optimistic with lows to -11°C during the same evening with 20 kl hour winds which will increase the wind chill.

Temperatures are not going to be above 0°C for sometime.  The lowest temperature recorded on this date between (1993-2016) was -11.4°C in 1998. We could either just break that record or smash it.
