Who's ready for some sunshine and milder temperatures? After last week’s three intense rain and wind storms, lots of people will be pleased with the change that's on the way.

A ridge of high pressure building from the south brings dry weather to Greater Victoria through Tuesday.

Morning cloud and fog is possible for many south island communities, but sunshine will break through warming the afternoons to temperatures above seasonal average.

Thursday the dry weather and warmer temperatures are back and they'll stick around through the weekend.

Storm #3: Rainfall

October is typically when wet weather ramps up on the west coast. The third storm in last week's series of systems brought another round of heavy rain to the island. Between 5 a.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Monday some parts of Vancouver Island received more than 100 millimetres of rain.

The island will have some time to dry out after all that heavy rain. With the exception of Wednesday's front, no major rainfall is expected for the next 10 days.
