Sorry for the lack of updates everyone, the VIU Strike has monopolized most of my time and thrown me off my usual schedule.

Today (Tuesday) we should escape without too much rain though much like Monday the later into the day we go, the more likely there will be rain drops falling.

The rain will increase overnight and by morning we should have around 20-30mm of new rain. It’s slated to fall mainly in the morning so hopefully by Wednesday afternoon it has stopped and we can dry off a bit.

The next pulse of rain, not as strong as Wednesday, will arrive Thursday morning… it should not last as long as Wednesday. Looking further out, we might have some rain and/or wind on Friday but it will again be not as strong as Wednesday or Thursday.

The good news is that through all of this it will stay pretty seasonal temperature wise…. we should be at or above 9-10C all week, though there is the possibility that we get down below freezing in the early morning going into the Weekend.
