We are in the midst of a rainy pattern.

The good news is Port Alberni will miss most of the rain today as the meat of the moisture stays to our east south on the Island as you can see below.

So only expect intermittent showers in Port Alberni for most of the day.

The moisture swings in to our area in the 5-8PM timeframe. But only 2mm is expected in that 3hr period.

More consistent rain is expected overnight and intensifying Thursday morning and lasting all day.

We should dry out on Friday with only a chance of lingering cloud bursts on Friday afternoon.

Another rainy system is coming in for Saturday morning.

We hopefully dry out a bit Sunday.

Happy Short Week Wednesday!
