In the rain.

There will be a chance of showers but in general we should dry out considerably through Monday. Even the forecasted rain for Tuesday look iffy.

We still have a chance to see that comet if we ever get a clear night.

Look for the comet low in the West/WestNorthwest Sky (towards the Comox Glacier).

I’ll try to find a pinpoint position that you can look at so you can have the best chance to catch it. I will update this post when I do. All we need is some clear nights, Sunday/Monday might be our best shots.
