There is hope in the long term forecast. Of course, you know what they say about long term forecasts… but hey we gotta have something to be optimistic about!

The forecast out past July 1st is showing a strengthening high building over a long period of time. It’s currently all over the place in terms of temperature but usually the pressure values are the most reliable from these long term charts so I’m hoping the high pressure is going to mean some consistent, warm temperatures.

This weekend doesn’t look great, but Monday onwards does seem to be another improving trend.

Optimism! It’s all we got in Junuary! πŸ™‚

And is anyone else feeling a little sweaty? High humidity out there today, especially in Nanaimo (86% here at VIU! Yuk!) and 77% in Port Alberni. Sticky!
