Low pressure has moved into southern British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest, and will push a cold front across our area later tonight and tomorrow bringing showers and thunderstorms along with a much cooler air mass. The showers and thunderstorms are likely into Friday, then decrease early in the weekend, as the air mass stabilizes.

Today is Robert Allen Zimmerman's (Bob Dylan) 71st birthday!
"For almost 50 years, Bob Dylan has remained, along with James Brown, the most influential American musician rock & roll has ever produced. Inscrutable and unpredictable, Dylan has been both deified and denounced for his shifts of interest, while whole schools of musicians took up his ideas. His lyrics — the first in rock to be seriously regarded as literature — became so well known that politicians from Jimmy Carter to Vaclav Havel have cited them as an influence." (Rolling Stone)
