The evenings and mornings will be cool with possible frost in low lying areas. We got down to 0.78º C this morning.
New Ditidaht/Nitinat Lake Weather Station
The folks at islandweather.ca just installed a new weather station at the Ditidaht elementary school! This provides a window into a very unique little spot on Vancouver Island weather wise and will no doubt come in handy for the wind enthusiasts that frequent the area.
You can see its little dot at the head of Nitinat lake halfway between Port Alberni and Port Renfrew. Click the image to go to the weather station page itself.
Have a great 2nd week of Spring Break!
