Warm Monday Afternoon – Showers everyday of the week – Maybe Sunny next week?

It will be mostly cool and wet… except for Monday, when it is supposed to be quite warm by afternoon.

Here is the temperature map for Monday 5PM showing temperatures up to 68ºF/20ºC in the Valley.  I’ll believe it when it happens.

The rest of the week appears to be much cooler… in the 10-15ºC range until we get to the weekend when we might actually get some sun and warmth again.

As for the prospects of rain.  Well, it’s already drizzling now… we should get a pulse of rain around 10AM this morning and then no more for the rest of the day.

The Rain will return a little stronger and earlier, about 8AM, Tuesday.

It should let up by noon but it might drizzle most of the day Tuesday.

Wednesday looks maybe a little stormy like Friday was with little pockets of showers popping up after noon all over the Island but very spread out and not as strong as Friday.

Some more rain will come on Thursday as well… but that’s enough into the future for now… but wait.. maybe a little more.

Check out the long range cloud forecast….

I see the daily minimum temperatures trending upward through next week as well….

Wild Rainy Friday afternoon and evening – drying Saturday – rain Sunday

As I type, the rain is coming down very hard in Nanaimo.

in fact, it is doing just as the UWash model said it would…. Notice the blob of rain off Nanaimo in the image below.

There are eports of heavy rain, hail, even a water spout was spotted in Georgia Strait yesterday.

The crazy weather will continue this evening but should clear by midnight.

We might see some clear breaks on Saturday through the morning and early afternoon but the unstable weather will return by late afternonn though nothing like today.  It will definitely be the best day of the weekend and by sunset you will be watching the Canucks beat Calgary anyway right!?

You will want to get your outside work done early Sunday.  By noon, the threat of rain will increase and full on rain will begin by 2PM and last the rest of the day and linger into Monday as well.

Sorry for the late report.

If you are worried about the weather, just remember:  Keep Calm and GO CANUCKS GO! :)

P.S. There was also another earthquake near Haida Gwaii today. 6.1M No threat of Tsunami.  Sure has been active there lately. Check my twitter link for info.
