Update Sunday 8AM

The Airport got 12mm on Saturday. The more serious rain has come overnight and today though. So far we have 25m at Alberniweather since Midnight and wind gusts to 60kph. Our rain total for the storm since Friday is 43mm.

Here is the updated Rainfall Warning. We should get another 30mm at least. Unless the Airport has received far more than me, overall we have not had as much as they originally predicted. We are still very much able to beat the all time dry record since July.

  1. I think Mommy Nature finally got the “It’s Fall!” memo. We’ve already got 30mm of rain in Ucluelet as of this writing, and it’s still coming down pretty good. Wouldn’t surprise me if we got close to what’s forecast, too.

  2. I have recorded 92mm of precip for Oct 13/14. (31mm/61mm) I’m thinking the high location of your rainbucket has allowed a large majority of the precip to be swept away by the wind?
    Maquinna school, albeit not as sheltered as here, but more than your house, recorded 46mm today so far.

    Just my 2 bits.

    1. Well we know the airport lives in its own microsystem after watching it for years say it was never hot in Port Alberni, and this year it said it was hot in town and everyone is walking around in jackets. Go figure.

      1. Ya, the joys of meteorology with limited data. Hey, could you post your total precip in the current (this morning) thread at your station from July 1 to today? It’ll give us another data point to consider for the 1896 record.
