It’s going to be ugly for a couple days. Not like, torrential rain ugly… but definitely not bright and sunny either.

I’ve been getting a lot of questions (including from the paper!) about whether it’s ever going to warm up around here. Unfortunately it seems the consensus is that it’s not for a while yet. Still lots of cold air hanging around, lots of unstable air. No nice big high pressures. You can lay the blame squarely on the La Nina phenomenon which is weakening off South America (ie. the water off SAm is starting to warm) but the global weather pattern remains a traditional La Nina. And that means more of the same for us and more of the same frightening weather for the United States. Plus a good chance for a very active hurricane season down there too.

Hang in there though, we’ll get a break on the weekend.

And oh ya.

GO CANUCKS!

  1. It’s coming down pretty hard right now, but yeah, the long term forecasts all agree that it’ll be cool and wet until at least June. At least we’re not alone though, all of southern Canada looks to be in the same boat with us.

  2. Have you seen or heard any predictions for what the summer months will be like? drier? wetter? warmer? cooler?
