Dry Remembrance Day...Rain Moves Back in Tomorrow...Nov 11th
- A mix of sun and cloud will dominate the rest of the day ahead of a system that will bring rain for tomorrow morning
- The system is sitting in the upper levels of the atmosphere but will rain for the overnight and for the morning commute before tapering to showers tomorrow afternoon
- Showers will linger through Wednesday and with a moist flow in the atmosphere for the rest of the week.. showers will remain a risk in the forecast right through to the weekend
- Temperatures are fairly mild over the next couple of days (11-12 afternoon highs) but this does mean that snow levels are rising so snow snow for the locals..
- Looks like cooler, arctic air arrives by the weekend though
Tropical Storm Haiyan Update
- Haiyan made landfall on the northern Vietnam coast near the Chinese border as a Category 1 storm with 150 km/h winds yesterday evening PT time
- Haiyan has now pushed into Southeastern China and continues to weaken. Sustained winds are now down to 110 km/h and will be down around 85 km/h in the next 12 hours.
- But up to 200 mm of rain will likely continue to cause moderate flooding in eastern China
- The strongest sustained winds with Haiyan were 314 km/h and occurred upon landfall neat the city of Guiuan
- This estimate came from satellite measurements and there is no ground level or hurricane hunter measurements to verify this estimate. But that estimate would make Haiyan the most intense tropical cyclone ever recorded upon landfall
