The West Coast has very unpredictable weather, the old saying is, "if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes." The weather changes frequently up in the Tofino area. I watched the hourly forecast and it was calling for sun in the morning and rain around 1:00pm, at 1:14pm the wind & rain started. So I do what every good west coaster does when up in Tofino you grab your rain gear and head out to storm watch.
This is rain country and it is quite evident when you look at the surrounding forest. The beach was all but empty with only a few souls braving the gusty winds and rain.
This storm is a little one compared to the ones that happen in the fall and winter storm season and people from around the world come here to storm watch.
What a difference a day makes, sun and warm temperatures to cold, wind, and rain. Love West Coast living!
