Rain all day. With the heaviest as the system departs around 8PM.
Total up to 30mm. 60-120 on the west coast.
At this point the weekend is looking pretty dry at least for Saturday with maybe just a few lingering showers.
Rare Aurora over the Beaufort caught on camera.
An Alberni resident named Glassghost on Flikr captured a perfect shot of Aurora Borealis on Tuesday night as a strong geomagnetic storm produced aurora as far south as Virginia.
There are generally only one or two days a year when there is even a chance to see Aurora in our region. And with the light pollution from the City it is even harder unless it is a very strong event like Tuesday. Then there is the clouds issue, and the issue of staying up to prime viewing time generally past midnight.
In all, a great feat and a beautiful exposure with the stars.
