I’m pleased to announce I’ve compiled all of the over 99,000 images capture last year by the alberniweather webcam and crammed them into a 10 minute video. (If you’re interested, a “full year” of images every five minutes would be around 105,000… so we’re missing a few days worth :)).
You can see the video on Youtube here. I highly recommend clicking the little “High Quality Version” link at the bottom edge of the video as it does make a big difference and isn’t much different in terms of download time.
You can see all the daily, weekly and monthly timelapses at http://www.youtube.com/alberniweather add it to your Bookmarks! 😀
The Westcoaster also has a report on the record rainfall experienced last week on the West Coast.
the first daily record fell Jan. 6 when the Tofino weather station recorded 178.6 millimetres of precipitation. The old daily record was set on the same day in 2004, when 75.4 millimetres of precipitation fell.
The second daily record fell Jan. 10, when 164.6 millimetres of rain fell, she said. The old record for that day was set in 1987 when 114 millimetres of rain fell.
“We normally get for the entire month 435 [millimeters],” said McCarthy. As of Monday morning, 523.6 millimetres of rain had fallen at the Tofino weather station, she said.
The record for the most precipitation to fall during January was set in 2005 when the Tofino Weather Station recorded 895.8 millimetres of precipitation.
