My webhost has fixed its issues just in time for some rainy and windy weather on Friday and through the night into Saturday morning.

The rain will come first in the morning on Friday and will pass by Noon. Then it will switch to gradually more blustery conditions time that will peak in the night on Friday and Saturday.

The worst of the wind for the West and East coasts should come in the very early morning on Saturday 1AM-6AM, but it will hang around. This image is for 7AM Saturday. (click to go to the full loop)

If you are counting on the Ferries running on Friday night or Saturday morning, you might want to be prepared for delays. As you can see above, at 7AM, Georgia Strait will have 30-35knot (grey/green) winds which will make the crossings…. uncomfortable. 🙂

So get out the umbrella if you don’t already… but make sure it doesn’t blow inside out!

  1. Really appreciate the quality of the website & detail of your forecasts! CBC Radio weather reports often just say “windy” with no indication of direction. I may not be a mariner, but direction gives me more info about what system is moving through.
