Not too many changes in the weather outlook with more clouds, drizzle, showers and light rain on the way this week. We will continue to experience high humidity as well. The best chance of any steady rain will be Wednesday night and Thursday.
Monday we had plenty of clouds at times and even some light showers and sprinkles. Boy, when that sun came out one could really feel the warmth of the sun; could you feel it? I don’t really like muggy air but at least it is not associated with a tropical storm.
A small breakthrough in the weather eye is in the offing. Next week computer forecast models are bringing summer back to us with highs expected to be well into the 80s by Monday and I think we will reach the 90-degree mark once again.
Why not you say? Well it is summer and July has been a dud warmth-wise, so a few days of pool-side weather will be welcomed by many, I suppose. Of course, for me, I’ll be hiding out in the cooler regions of the Northwest, along the coast enjoying the sea breeze. Sun worshippers rejoice!
Even though things look dried out along the freeways and roadways, vegetation continues to grow in the woodlands and could be a problem if the weather heats up in August. It would then dry and add plenty of fuel for wildfires.
The average mean temperature so far this month in Vancouver is 67.2 degrees, which is exactly normal. That doesn’t happen often. We are over in the rainfall department by one half-inch and we could possibly add a quarter-inch to that total or so depending on how much of a punch the weather maker midweek has to offer.
The main thrust of moisture remains to our north, as it has the past several weeks. British Columbia has received some good soakings for sure. Little wildfire activity there, hope it remains so. Remember last year’s smoky skies? No thank you.
Enjoy the moisture and get ready for some better weather settling in this weekend.
