We had a decent little blow last night with some rain along with it. But if the forecast holds for tonight then be on your toes for a stronger bout of wind and a whole lot of rain.

They are calling for 40-50mm of rain for our region, if you are headed to Nanaimo, be careful going around Cameron Lake.

Here is the synopsis from Environment Canada:

An intense frontal system will approach the British Columbia coast late today. The strongest winds ahead of the front will develop over the Queen Charlottes, exposed sections of north and central coast, and North Vancouver Island this afternoon. The frontal system will spread strong southeast winds of 70 to 80 km/h to West Vancouver Island, exposed sections of East Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast, Southern Gulf Islands, and metro Vancouver this evening. Winds are expected to ease tonight in the wake of the front.

Once we get through tonight and the next day or so, it should clear up before another front comes in on Friday.

At least now we’re getting normal weather for the season! Now the question is, when will be our first 20C day (they’re calling for 20C back East next week!)

  1. Yeah I was quite surprised to come out of Boston Pizza for the postgame get-together, and find it to be absolutely wet and windy.
