That’s right I said it! Rain showers! I hope everyone had a great BC Day Weekend!

We have already started off very nicely today. By the evening though clouds are going to roll in and we have a good chance of rain showers between 5-8PM or possibly even a little earlier.

It will be short lived.

Another weak collection of showers might pop up between 11AM and 2PM Wednesday and the threat will last through Wednesday evening.

And we aren’t done yet.  We have another slightly more intense, but maybe less sure system coming through Thursday evening around 5PM that is mostly focused on us it seems.  We will see if it actually happens.

In all the models predict 4mm Tuesday, 8mm Wednesday, 2mm Thursday.  It’s not much, but it’s better than nothing.

We should get up to a pleasant and slightly above normal 25ºC today.  And cool to just over 20ºC on Wednesday.  There is some possibility of real rain on the weekend, in the 20-30mm range.  But I am not going to say definitely yet.  The models don’t all agree.  And some have us heating up again by Friday and some don’t.  So for now, we’ll just focus on now until Thursday. 🙂

Happy Tuesday Monday All! 🙂
