So thanks to a commenter I discovered the latest Accuweather long range forecast from Canadian meteorologist Brett Anderson. His predictions for the Summer?

Mean pattern for the week of July 20-26

–A fairly dry, warm pattern across most of British Columbia.

The week of July 27-Aug 2

–A very warm and generally dry pattern from southern BC through the Pacific Northwest.

The week of Aug 3-9

–Temperatures above normal in the Pacific Northwest through BC, with rainfall below normal across this region, but there will be the usual share of afternoon showers and thunderstorms in the mountains.

So there you have it. Looks pretty good to me 🙂 Hope everyone gets a little time off to enjoy it.

Oh, and before I go. To all my French speakers out there (I know I have at least one!) Vive la France! Today, July 14 is their National Holiday. I’ll be humming the Marseilles today in your honour.

  1. C’est moi? Ce qui est étonnant, c’est qu’il est difficile, en dehors des grandes agglomérations, de trouver des gens pour scander les petits versets de La Marseillaise: si cocorico qu’ils puissent être, les Français semblent opter plutôt pour les feux d’artifice, les bals populaires et la buverie en guise de geste patriotique. Tant mieux!
