Be careful out there this morning. There is some snow in Alberni and it is clear, so likely icy as well.

That said, it looks like this is our last day of iffy weather and the sun is signalling a nice warming trend on the way for the rest of the week and weekend!

We’ve had quite the hodgepodge of weather where it could be snowing one minute, sunny the next, and raining the next… isn’t spring exciting!

Here’s a picture I took of the ‘two skies’ we had around dinner time yesterday. Snowing and dark in one half, clear and bright in the other.

The good news is after Thursday there doesn’t look to be any chance of rain until the next major system slated to come in next Tuesday. We can expect some sunnier weather (morning fog notwithstanding) between now and then with temperatures reaching the double digits! Hooray!
