Tomorrow is pretty interesting. First, plenty of rain is coming. Nothing too serious, but a good 40mm. Enough to get the streets running. That should start overnight with the strongest downpours in through the morning and middle of the day.

There will be some wind with it, but nothing like Saturday. That should come in the 4PM or later timeframe.

And finally, there could very well be some Northern Lights tomorrow. A major solar flare blasted off the sun this morning and the CME should hit us tomorrow morning with auroras lasting all day.

Are you going to be able to see them? Probably not. ๐Ÿ™‚ But hey, you never know. If you see any clear spots in the north sky after dark keep an eye out for green or red lights.

And finally, I did not escape unscathed from the 89kph winds yesterday. My roof got a bit exposed after some of my shingles blew loose.

But thanks to a call to Javen Simon roofing, it was fixed quickly and expertly. And Javen’s apparently a big fan of Alberniweather.ca so a doubly great guy. Thanks Javen!

(And no, that’s not a paid advertisement like you hear on the radio ๐Ÿ™‚ Just happy my roof is all put back together)

  1. Just for everyone’s enjoyment, 1 am observations at Sartine Island: Wind SSE 68, gusting 77.
    That’s knots, folks, not km/h.ย 

    not anywhere near as bad down where i am, but it is keeping me awake…. ๐Ÿ™‚
