Scale Bar: Mildly Wet
After a near record dry spell this summer, the fall, November specifically, is in line to set records for rain. Leaves have all fallen and the cleanup is underway. Grass is green and lush. At the station the soil has been draining well despite the well above average rainfall. However, 50km east, just beyond the suburbs in Abbotsford, Sumas Prairie has experienced a major flood following last weeks deluge. Fields are under considerable water. People are evacuated. What used to be Sumas Lake, filled in the 1920’s, has returned.  Elsewhere in the Province there have been a number of mudslides. These have severed roads and injured or killed some. Today more heavy rain is expected, and two more storms are set for landfall before the end of the month. The station seems to be in a pocket of heavier precipitation during the last storm. Despite this plants are doing well and there has only been localized pooling of water. Many nights have seen cooler than average temperatures since about the third week of October. Our weather, since the heat in June and right now, can certainly be called unusual.
