The pleasant warm days continue. We got up to 29ºC officially yesterday. The same day last year we hit a ridiculous 35ºC, and were days away from the start of the Dog Mountain fire. Thankfully, the fire situation is nowhere near as desperate here or the rest of the province this year, however, we are still feeling the effects of last years drought here on Vancouver Island and that was exemplified by yesterdays announcement of “Extremely Dry” Drought conditions on Vancouver Island.
We have a perfect forecast for the beginning of the summer vacation. No doubt there will be plenty of people at Rogers Creek Park, and swimming in the Somass, Canal Beach and at Sproat Lake.
The models this morning are not quite as hot as the official EC forecast so it will be fun to see who is right, but it is really only academic since no matter what, we will have a very pleasant day.
