Lightning across the West Coast of the Island this morning. Wet week.

Lightning began very early this morning with most strikes occurring near Ahousaht north of Tofino and near Kyuquot.

However, in the past hour lightning has spread to the Kennedy Lake area and off of Nitinat and south of Port Alberni near Nahmint Lake. There will be a possibility of lightning and thunder across the Island today.

Rain to continue tonight. Then Wednesday morning and into Thursday

We will have showers off and all all day but steady rain will move back in this afternoon and last overnight. We should get a bit of a break Tuesday.

On Wednesday a strong system will move in overnight and into Wednesday morning. It should move through quickly and start to dry out by noonish but the rain will be heavy in the morning and the return Wednesday night and into the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation on Thursday.

Definitely an umbrella kind of week this week! Just make sure it doesn’t get zapped or blown inside out!
