We’re already proving that we’re better at hockey than Vancouver. Now it’s time to prove we’re better at rain and thunder, too!

At least that’s some positive spin on the forecast for the next few days, which will involve thunderstorms and multiple days of rain. Wednesday will have a 60 per cent chance of showers and a high of 18 C looming over the day, developing into a risk of thunderstorms into the evening and overnight. Those showers will turn to full blown rain by Thursday with a high of 12 C, and Zeus’ full rage upon us as the thunderstorm continues.
