The chance of afternoon showers will continue today and Thursday as this unstable air sticks around.

Camping Friday Night?

There is a good chance you will get wet, so prepare accordingly, though it is less likely on the West side of the Island.

Saturday mostly dry!

Below is the image forecast for the full 24hrs from 5AM Saturday to Sunday.  As you can see most of the Island is dry!  So this looks to be the best day of the weekend!

Take Cover Sunday!

 

Unfortunately, the opposite is true Sunday, as the whole Island is going to get rain between 5AM Sunday/Monday mornings.image

 

The rain will begin in the afternoon Sunday and last through evening. So make sure your picnic table is covered!

On Monday it will be the same again with a chance of showers mainly on the north end ofnthe Island but some for the south as well.

I will update this forecast again Friday morning or afternoon… I am in the sunny and warm Okanagan this week for a conference in Kelowna.

Happy Wednesday!
