We have had some pretty variable weather of late. And that invariably leads to rainbows like this one yesterday!

Or moody skies like these on Tuesday at VIU.

There are scattered showers around the Island today, not much should actually accumulate though and we might get some patches of sun.

Friday will be similar but the threat of showers will be even less.

Saturday is looking pretty great. I will have more details for the weekend and the start of next week tomorrow!

Happy Thursday!
