Come on, admit it. You’re secretly wishing for it aren’t you 😉
Welcome to Vancouver, Need an Umbrella? 😀
UPDATE: This is getting a little more serious now. As of this morning (Monday) the GFS has increased its estimate up to 210mm Thursday through Sunday. With the largest amounts coming Friday night and Sunday morning. The probability of strong winds has also increased particularly for all of Saturday but also on Thursday night . Saturday is still 6 days away, so this forecast could still change but at this point it is pretty ugly.
On the bright side, the temperatures aren’t forecast to be above 8 degrees. So maybe, juuuuuust maybe, Cypress Bowl will get a big dump of snow right in time for the Olympics.
Or maybe they’ll still have to snowboard on the straw bales and 2 month old snow, while it pukes down sleet.
Oh I don’t envy those athletes nor the organizers one bit. They’re really not getting much of a break!
We’ll see how it pans out.
Full Disclosure: My wife, daughter and I will be at the Opening Ceremonies on Friday (nosebleeds! 5 from the top of BC Place!) and Canada vs. Slovakia womens hockey on Saturday. We’re extremely excited and I really hope the weather is OK. We’re also very thankful to my friends in Vancouver who have put us up (or are putting up with us? 🙂 ) for 3 nights! Thanks Rod and Roz, you’re the best!!
