|Sunny Skies and warm temperatures will be bringing North Coast|
residents to many of the city's favourite outdoor locales this week
As August edges over the horizon with the sunrise of tomorrow, the North Coast may finally get a glimpse of summer like temperatures, as well as a somewhat extended visit by that bright Orb up in the sky.
The forecast for the remainder of the week is calling for Sunshine and warm temperatures for the region, a welcome break from the last few months of Clouds, rain and decidedly Un-Summer like registers on your home thermometer.
Friday could bring what will be the warmest day of the summer so far when we reach 21 degrees in Prince Rupert.
According to the official records hosted on the Environment Canada website, that mark has only been approached once over the last three months, when on May 28th the temperature climbed to just a notch below 21.
And if you believe that this has been an unusually wet summer season you are right.
The three months of May, June and July have brought their fair share of precipitation
May 221 mm
June 95 mm
July 137 mm
So, break out the sunblock, go find yourself a nice bit of shade or if inclined, lay out the beach towel and catch some rays, your long awaited summer season is here, for a week anyways.
Sunshine and Warm temperatures will also be the featured attraction of the seven day forecast for Haida Gwaii, while Terrace and Smithers will be flirting with temperatures near 30 degrees by the time the long weekend arrives.
One note of caution however as the temperatures begin to climb, make sure that you have your home secured at the end of these warm summer days, unlocked doors and open windows can make for an inviting target for those that take advantage of warmer days.
