Well, where Tuesday had some unexpected sun, Wednesday went made up for it with a full day of rain.

We will have a break now.  It got quite cool overnight, 3.4ºC at Alberniweather so that has brought about some fog.  Hopefully we will see it lift as it is only partly cloudy above.

Unfortunately, the break will be short lived.  Another system will sweep in from the Pacific late Thursday night and into Friday morning delivering both rain and wind again.

It will deliver rain the entire day on Friday. Heavy at times.

Accumulations of up to 30mm are expected which may be a little more than what we saw on Wednesday.

Showers will linger on Saturday.

We should get another break on Sunday before showers return Monday.

Have a great weekend and stay dry tomorrow! 🙂
