You asked for summer. It is here. :) Fire risk to extreme by Wednesday.

It took all of July but summer has finally come to the West Coast.  It is going to get hot and stay hot all week.

The UWash and EC forecasts are pretty close to each other here is a comparison… UWash is generally not as hot as EC.

  • Day : UWash range : EC Forecast
  • Monday : 29-31°C : 32°C (Humidex of 35°C!)
  • Tuesday : 27-29°C :  31°C (Humidex of 35°C!)
  • Wednesday : 29-31°C : 33°C
  • Thursday : 29-31°C : 36°C
  • Friday : 27-29°C :  32°C

Here is the current BC Wildfire risk map.  This should change fairly dramatically by the end of the week.


The danger forecast report has our rating going to extreme by Wednesday the 27th.


Enjoy the lake, enjoy the sun, stay safe. 🙂

Wishing the Mars a safe trip! Heat coming soon.

Short Post just want to wish the Hawaii Mars well.  I am a little sad that I am in Victoria and not able to wave goodbye to her this morning.

She has already taken off and is in Nanaimo.  You can track her on Flightradar. or on the flightradar24 App.


Below is her planned route. She should be in OshKosh by early this evening.


The weather is going to get hot on Monday!  Summer is here.

Have a great weekend.
