Get Ready for a Stormy Halloween!…Pumpkin


weather pumpkin

Well? What did you expect? 😉

Last night the family carved pumpkins, and after several minutes of contemplating what I would carve it then struck me: carve a storm in the pumpkin! And that’s exactly what I did. Ahhh…I just love this time of year. Storms, pumpkins, Halloween, the chill in the air…what’s not to love?

Well, unfortunately have some news to report that many of you will definitely NOT love. You know all that beautiful snow that fell in the mountains over the weekend and early this week? Yeah, well a big chunk of that is going bye-bye because of a warm tropical storm system headed for B.C., but we’ll get plenty of the warmth and moisture from it, especially tomorrow night. Sad, I know, but this happens frequently in the winter. If models are correct, we should get back on track in the mountains by next week.

So after a mild, breezy day Friday, rain will increase later in the day overlapping into Saturday morning before things start to calm down and even clear out a bit just in time for all your Halloween plans! Awww…isn’t Mother Nature sweet?

And whaddaya know! Most of next week looks very calm for the beginning of November with clouds, sunbreaks, light rain and seasonable temperatures in the low to mid 50s.

I don’t think many of us will mind that change in weather 😉

Have a great evening and get carving those pumpkins!
