Friday and Saturday will see clouds, possible thunder

It was a beautiful day to head to the lake on Thursday. We went over there and there were so many people we actually decided to skip it and go another day. Instead we hung out in the yard and made homemade pizza and watched the hummingbirds buzz by the feeder.

All in all, not a bad day at all. 🙂

There is a slight chance of showers Friday as a weak system pushes through around noon.

It will be short lived though and we should be dry again by the evening.

In its wake there will be some unsettled weather that could lead to thundershowers on Saturday particularly near the mountain ranges on Saturday morning. Below is the 8-11AM period Saturday. Notice the pocket of moisture over the Beauforts and Parksville/Qualicum area.

Watch for sudden downpours if you’re out on the roads on Saturday.

Rest of the weekend lots hot and dry

Sunday, Monday and Tuesday look equally hot and dry so get out there (safely!) and enjoy it while you can. We might not quite get to 30ºC but it will be close. Canada Day will cool off a bit but it should stay dry right through next week.
