New webcam acquired. It'll take a few days for me to get the software working to create the livestream and timelapses, and then mount the camera on the roof. But it's coming! Currently watching our bikes. :D

Apologies: My webhost had made a change yesterday that I didn't notice until just now and it prevented the forecasts on the website from updating. Now updating again!

Hey! The new weather radar is active on the BC South Coast! EC had taken the Mt Sicker radar (near Duncan) offline a few years ago. The new radar is at Halfmoon Peak (49.5262, -123.8547) near Sechelt, I've circled the point in the attached picture. Looks like it covers all the way up to Port McNeill. It should also do a decent job getting across the Island. I still think they should have a radar at Tofino airport to get systems as they come onto the coast.

I am actually surprised there is not a rainfall warning for the East side of the Island. The rain is very heavy here.

I was looking at the same-time forecasts over the past week of forecast model runs at UWash for the position of today’s storm.

The first frame of this morning's 12Z run had the initial position of the centre of the 96.3kPa low around 49ºN and 137W.

It has been pretty solid on that position since the 12Z Thursday run and first started to suggest that on the 12Z Tuesday. So those 5 day forecast do definitely have weight.

as the first major winter storm pummels Vancouver Island it's a good reminder - is your household prepared for power outages? Do you have a light source, warm clothes, a way to heat food if the power is out for more than a few hours? Here are some tips from BC Hydro. Plan for 72 hours.

is open but they have people and signs staged all along. Looks like they are ready to close it at a moment's notice. Hopefully nothing happens and a closure isn't needed but definitely on alert as the rain continues. Thankfully the wind has not been bad at all in overnight and there weren't any branches down on the highway so it must not have been too bad on the East side either.

Woke up to the sound of heavy rain on the roof. One of my favourite sounds. 🌧️

This Anchorage Daily News article may be paywalled, but if you can read this piece by Seth Kantner, please do. It speaks to my heart on how climate change is impacting our beloved before our very eyes. For some of us of a certain age, solastalgia, the sadness and mourning for the environment we loved but that's been lost, is very real.

The first fall storm... pretty weird to see nearly 18°C and winds from the NE. Plenty of energy out there for some ⚡️

Yikes, first big windstorm of the season coming in early with deciduous trees in full foliage. Not so good. Got the generator ready.
