Today at 1:02PM will be the first moment of fall.

The afternoon of the autumnal equinox will be sunny and warm.

The last two days of Summer have been notable since Port Alberni was the hottest spot in B.C. both days with a very pleasant temperature around 20°C

Sept 21

Sept 20

We should see similar temperatures for today!

 

Unfortunatel the first full day of fall onnSaturday will not be as pleasant. Expect showers to begin early Saturday and last most of the day.

We will get a break on Sunday followed by more rain on Monday.

I hope you go to check out the record breaker August Summary and Winter Forecast!

In that post you will see the expectations for both Fall and Winter.

If we look at the maps for the periods of October/November/December and December/January/Febraury

I think we get a pretty good indication of what the models are thinking.

Here is temperature for the two periods.

oct/nov/dec

dec/jan/feb

We can clearly see the models expect a shift from slihtly above normal to slightly below normal temperatures. Further, because December is included in both, we can infer that December will probably be on the cooler side, but the real meat of the cold might not dig in until the New Year.

The precipitation forecast is much less ambiguous:

Both periods show wetter than normal conditions. So expect the drought to come to an end for good soon. It might be a long rainy season, and, like last year, a bunch of that rain, might end up white.

Have a great weekend, I may not be able to post any updates next week as I am in Vancouver from Sunday to Sunday! Have a great first week of Fall.
