As there was in Nanaimo a couple days ago, there will be another shot at some thunderstorm activity tonight as we clear out the last of the clouds that have brought us showers the last few days.

Once it’s all done though tonight it should start to clear and tomorrow should be warm and sunny and continue that way through the weekend. There will likely be low cloud or fog each morning as it is getting quite cool now but the days should be bright no chance of rain.

Did you hear about the Earthquake in Victoria yesterday? Friends and relatives of mine down there felt it rumble which is pretty cool. It was nothing too serious, only 3.0 in magnitude.

It’s been a very active couple weeks all along the Pacific coast of North America for Earthquakes, and with Twitter and Facebook you are guaranteed to hear about anything within a couple minutes of it happening!
