Short update.

We should stay mostly dry this morning but there is a chance of showers starting between 11 and 2PM and then more serious showers and rain in the 2-5PM time period.

The may include some wind but the low pressure centre is well to the South so it would be windy just as the front moved through.

We dry out overnight and stay dry tomorrow but points south on the Island will get a lot more rain.  If the forecast is wrong and the main flow shifts north then we would get the rain too.

The rest of the work week doesnt seem to bad at this point. Saturday might be wet again.

In other news, I am excited I will be going to an Emergency Prep BC meeting today for the City getting ready for next Junes big earthquake and tsunami drill.

Happy Wednesday!
