It’s a good thing the Oilers are in Vancouver for Game 5, because we should probably all stay inside for the next couple days if we can help it.

The next two days are expected to be wet and windy, getting up to 10 mm of rainfall Thursday as well as winds climbing to 40 km/h and the risk of a thunderstorm early in the afternoon, with a high of 14 C. Those winds will persist overnight before climbing up to 50 km/h by Friday morning, with a 30 per cent chance of more showers and a high of 9 C. We’ll get a short reprieve on Saturday with a sunny 15 C high before more showers on Sunday.
