Your news and weather for April 4, 2019

Get out your rubber boots….thankfully.

According to Environment Canada, today (Thursday April 5) is the last day of sunshine we’ve got here in Campbell River for the next five or so.

Which is a welcome change of pace, as March was unusually dry this year, meaning the rain is much-needed to stave of the inevitable fire ban season for as long as possible. (Plus, you know, the whole “not setting the province on fire again” thing.)

Here’s hoping we get enough over the next five days or so to give everything a nice good soak.
