It’s May! Bring on the sunshine and flowers!

After a relatively dry and warm April (more on that in the upcoming monthly summary, we are starting May off right with maybe just a few showers today and a sunny weekend.  The webcam is looking pretty good.

There will be just a few showers lingering in the mountains this afternoon.

After that, it looks dry and sunny for the entire  weekend!

(Note the temperature charts have switched to the summertime temperature scale so what was once orange and red for near 20°C temps is now 30°C.)

Here are the temperatures for Saturday afternoon, 15-18°C

Here is the cloud cover forecast through next week:

As you can see, the weekend should be mostly cloud free but we are going to possibly get some more showers on Tuesday before drying out again on Later in the week.

Have a wonderful weekend all! Happy May!

Chance of showers but improving toward weekend

We have had some pretty variable weather of late. And that invariably leads to rainbows like this one yesterday!

Or moody skies like these on Tuesday at VIU.

There are scattered showers around the Island today, not much should actually accumulate though and we might get some patches of sun.

Friday will be similar but the threat of showers will be even less.

Saturday is looking pretty great. I will have more details for the weekend and the start of next week tomorrow!

Happy Thursday!
