  • Our high pressure system sits offshore for one more day trying to hold off an approaching low pressure system
  • It does the job today, bringing one more round of mainly blue skies and low to mid 20 degree temps this afternoon. Although higher cloud will continue to roll in this afternoon. Today will be the 8th day of blues skies and above seasonal temps
  • The ridge begins to break down tonight and the first in a series of rain-makers will bring overcast skies starting late morning tomorrow, showers by the evening and Sunday rain
  • A few more lows will follow suit bringing rainy weather though to Wednesday
  • Temperatures will remain in the low 20s for tomorrow but will begin a cooling trend starting Sunday- down to the 14-15 degree range starting Monday-Wednesday
  • At this point there is low confidence in Thursday onwards forecast. Quite the discrepancy between more rain and blues skies.
  • With roughly 20 mm for the south coast this Sunday and another 40 mm early next week we will be watching the rivers closely: Here is the latest high stream advisory for the southern interior.
