There's a slight possibility of isolated showers or thunderstorms later today. Some more rain is certainly welcome.

So we did get a fair amount of rain last week but, unfortunately, it doesn't take long for the fuels to dry out again when the weather is this hot.

The smoke near the tops of the mountains almost makes it look like it's snowing up there.

You can pretty much just draw a line up from Comox to Fort St John, and get extreme all the way.
