Time to break out those umbrellas!

After an extremely hot and dry summer, Victoria is in for some long overdue rainfall – and it looks like we’ll be getting a lot of it.

Environment Canada’s 7-day weather forecast shows us that today’s gloomy weather was just the start. For all of next week, we can expect rain, rain, and more rain!

This sudden change of weather was predicted by Vancouver Island’s regional meteorologist, Armel Castellan, earlier this week when he told Victoria Buzz that a storm cycle was headed our way.

If the forecast is correct, the daytime temperature over the next week will rise no higher than 17°C, while the nighttime temperature will fall no lower than 10°C.

It looks like the old adage holds true for us this week: when it rains, it really does pour!
