Mother Nature is no stranger to irony and poor timing.  My kids are off to Rathtrevor today with the rest of Alberni Elementary School but unfortunately this may be the coolest and wettest day of the month!  Highs will be up to around 18-20°. Showers will begin before 9AM in Port Alberni and before 10AM in Parksville.  The good news is we desperately need the rain and at least it will remain pleasantly warm.  Also, if the sun does break out, it will likely make for a much warmer time than forecast.  So no worries.

Here is the hour by hour picture from 8-9AM to 3-4PM.

As you can see, the rain should taper off by 3PM (15:00).

Get ready for the Heat

Don’t be fooled by todays break from the clear and hot days.  The heat is still onnfor the weekend.  Here are the latest forecasts.

Friday up to 27°C
Friday up to 27°C
Saturday up to 30°C
Saturday up to 31°C
Sunday up to 34°C
Sunday up to 31°C

These estimates may be a little conservative.  Other models are still talking mid to high thurties.

Happy Wednesday!
