More Sun Ahead! Watch for Morning Fog...Oct 3rd

  • An upper level ridge of high pressure has built in over most of BC today, pushing out the unsettled and cool airmass
  • Skies cleared overnight last night but some shallow to thick fog did end up making an appearance early this morning thanks to lingering moisture. Most is burning off now
  • Temperatures will rebound to the 14-15 range over the next couple of days, as we get into a warmer airmass. Fog may be an issue again tonight and into tomorrow morning
  • Friday, after the fog, will see a nice mix of sun and cloud for most of the day but by the evening, clouds may start to roll in ahead of the next low pressure system
  • The weekend does not look like a wash-out though - only the slight risk for a few showers at this point but we may even get some good sunny breaks in. Not a lot of confidence in the weekend forecast I'm afraid but it is trending towards a decent one

Tropical Storm Karen Forms in the Gulf
  • Lots of eyes on the 11th named storm of the season that has quickly strengthened to 100 km/h (about 20 km/h shy of hurricane) and is expected to approach the northern Gulf Coast for Saturday
  • Additional strengthening over the next couple of days means that Karen -may- become a hurricane before landfall along the upper Gulf Coast Sat night. Hurricane Watches are in place for parts of Louisiana and Florida as well as Tropical Storm watches. A Watch means storm conditions expected within the next 48 hours
  • Near and just east of where Karen makes landfall, minor coastal flooding is possible as well as gusty winds that may lead to downed trees and power outages.
  • Looks like after landfall there is a chance Karen will hook up with a Canadian cold front to make for stormy east coast weather early next week
