There will be some more rain later today through Tuesday morning and there will be wind along with it.
There is a wind warning for both East and West Vancouver Island. Winds up to 70kph and 100kph can be expected in each region respectively. That should mean we get the odd gust here in Alberni as well. Be especially careful on the passes.
We did not get as much rain over the weekend as was initially feared. Indeed if we had it may have caused some local flooding.
The official station received 68mm. Far below the 100-150mm predicted for our region. That’s not to say we didn’t get near that in other places though. Nicks weather over by Maquinna got 90mm. The Islandweather station on Alberni Elementary got around 83mm and Alberniweather recorded 60mm.
Tops in the Inland Region of Vancouver Island goes to Tahsis thanks to the Island Weather station at Captain Meares Elementary which recorded an incredible 230mm over the weekend. Over 100mm fell yesterday alone.
So… In terms of our dryness record going back to 1896.. We still have plenty of head room.
There Is that much in the forecast out to the end of the month. Now it’s a question of whether we get it.
