Sunny and dry weather expected for Chilliwack

After a rainy November, a drying trend is forecast for early December.

After the 230 millimetres of rain that fell in November, Chilliwack is heading into an extended stretch of sunny – and dry – weather.

There were 23 days of rain in November, according to local weather watcher Roger Pannett. That’s five more days than the 30-year average. Mixed into that precipitation, said Pannett, volunteer weather observer for Environment Canada, was an additional 11centimetres of snow.

But the clouds are parting and the long-range forecast for the first half of December is calling for balmy days, and cool and frosty nights.

What precipitation is forecast will come as a scant shower.

Average highs for this time of year, according to Environment Canada, is 2 degrees; lows are -4.
