While rain and wind alerts keep the rest of the Island on its toes, Victorians flock outdoors to enjoy the weather as 2020 draws to a close.

According to Environment Canada, the chances of rain are ‘high’ Thursday afternoon around 2 p.m. with an expectation of only light winds – about 10 km/h from the southeast.

The first day of 2021 is much the same, with expected 20 km/h winds and a 40 to 60 per cent chance of showers.
