We’re looking at 24hours of rain (afternoon Friday-afternoon Saturday)… then a break.. then some more rain on Monday and Tuesday.

Keep those drains clear and all that good stuff.

After the rain stops on Tuesday there is a cool down coming. I would give us a 30% chance of accumulating snow late next week around Thursday and Friday. Still a long way off.

There is also a lot of talk in the wider weather blogosphere of a general cool down in the West as we end February and head into March.

So keep the umbrella handy, but don’t put away the scraper or the snow shovel for good yet, I think we still have a ways to go.

  1. I Think you’re right, Chris. More snow to go yet. But, thinking I might need to attach waterwings to the truck for tomorrow’s adventure….

  2. This is interesting – it’s going to cool off as the day goes on. It’s already dropped to 3C at the Airport weather station.

  3. It’s reporting 6C right now…. I notice the WUnderground forecast is calling for it to be a lot cooler than the EC forecast. Ice pellets and snow Monday night and Tuesday.

  4. Strange, according to EC’s 24 hour history, it was 7C @ 7am, down to 4C @ 8am, 3C @ 9am, and back up to 6C @ 10 am. The rain must be dragging down pockets of cold air.

  5. this is AWESOME weather we are having πŸ˜€
    on lathom st here and its just raining sideways πŸ˜€

    1. Pretty exciting today! I just drove around the flood plain and it’s not too bad yet. High tide is at 8:20 this evening, but it’s not a real big one.

  6. For the Wet Dept.. I’ve had 84mm at my station since midnight… In the Wind Dept, I saw many water funnel twister cloud thingys on Cameron Lake this afternoon on the way home rom Nana

  7. Cool! Ya Im sure a bunch of the rain was getting blown over the station today. Alberni Elementary got 58, I got 48.

  8. Calm again, it keeps changing directions. Out here in Beaver Creek it’s the North wind that gets us most. heard a huge crash must go investigate. Nick you should have taken your camera, those funnels on the lake are really cool!
