A short update today.

The high cloud that kept our temperature slightly down most of the day yesterday has now exited.  The sun will rise over the mountain today and deliver blistering heat (for April) that will rival anything Port Alberni has experienced in the past 100 years.

The all time all station record is 30.6°C set at the city station in Port Alberni in 1934.

I would not be surprised if we have another situation like Monday where the Airport does not quite reach that high, but the islandweather stations, including this one, surpass it.

We’ll see.

We should “cool” to only just short term Airport record territory tomorrow with a slight chance of rain in the early morning.

and then back down to normal temperatures in the 15°C range on Friday and the weekend. If you are headed to the west coast, it will be wet out there on Friday.  Only a bit of the wet is supposed to get to the Valley in the afternoon.

Saturday looks much more spring like with light showers off and on all over the region.

  1. Can’t help but think the rainforests days are numbered and Vancouver Island will look similar to Catalina Island in a hundred years or less.
