Could be a rather fun 24 hours. Notice the Barometer is quite low this morning and dropping. That’s the lowest it has been pretty much all winter. The EC forecast is talking about a “very deep” low forming just offshore that sping some moisture into the area and, thanks to the cool airmass, cause snow at higher elevation.
More importantly though, it is slated to track over Vancouver Island. By the look of the 6AM Satellite chart right now I think it has passed a little farther North than originally forecast so that shoud be a good thing in terms of wind, but could mean we’ll end up a with cooler air and more snow if moisture comes into the mix.
I’d say this weekend ranks up there in the weird-weather category for this year! Can you tell it’s Spring? Mother Nature doesn’t know what to throw at us. 😉
UPDATE Its been quite the day already… and if you want to know why, just check out the “eye” of the storm in the satellite shot here… the closer you are to the bottom-front (South East) edge of the “eye” the stronger your winds will be.
Now that the barometer is heading up (slowly) the “eye” has probably passed as close as it is going to get… but we’ll still get gusty winds and intermittent rain/snow as the “bands” wash over us.
