Looks like another front is moving through tomorrow. There is a strong storm out in the pacific that is slated to deepen to 948mb before it moves up into Alaska. My guess is that’s the storm that will be sending a front our way.

Be careful driving out there. There’s been a lot of accidents on Hwy 4 and 19 with the poor road conditions. Leave early and take your time.

There is no snow in the forecast right now. We keep seeing it pop up here and there at the end of the forecast period. Still lots of time to get your guess in! Use the link at the top left to find the contest page and enter your guess. And remember, only 1 guess per person/IP address please!

  1. Rain and lost of it! probably 40mm over the next day. There will likely be a wind warning up for the west coast Friday as well, we got a little breath of wind last night when the front got here but nothing serious.

    Umbrella weather for the next few days!

  2. WOW is it ever blowing and pouring right now. I’m surprised the EC wind warnings for the Island have overlooked us. This is the nastiest fall rainstorm I’ve seen here in a few years. So glad I’m not at work out in Clayoquot Sound today!!!

  3. wow was shocked to hear the thunder rolling out there.. it was awesome to be out in the storm today.. at one point there was a river going down my road lol…
