Cool and Wet

This morning's visual

Yesterday was another very nice day here.The temps reached into the 20s once again and it was sunny.A little dampness could be felt in the air in the late afternoon but the evening was quite pleasant and mild with the sky remaining mostly clear past midnight.Overnight the forecast rain moved into the area and we are getting some showers presently.It is also cool this morning and not expected to warm up much today.Certainly not a very good day for the Victoria Day long weekend opening of most Provincial campgrounds.
The rain is expected to last all day,clear and warmer tomorrow,and back to rain for the holiday on Monday with official temps remaining below seasonal normals.

Sunny,Cool And Breezy

This morning's visual:

It wasn't too bad here yesterday but we are still getting the N to NE breeze so it feels cool.It was actually quite cold on the hands on my bike ride last night but at least it was dry.
Taken last evening:Overnight the temps dropped to near the freezing point and there was a possibility of frost in the inland areas.The same is possible tonight although we are expecting a warmer day.
It's expected to be fine for the rest of the week up until Saturday.There's a good chance of rain for the weekend.....nothing new there.

Windy

Yesterday was cold,wet and windy here.The temp struggled to make it past 5° and the wind was very strong....anyone looking at the streaming cam sure would have seen it bouncing around.We had lots of rain with some pretty heavy downpours.
The rain has stopped but the wind is still quite strong here this morning.It is still cool and will remain this way for the day.
A slight improvement is expected as the day progresses but temps are to remain cool through this week.
