Apparently There'll Be a Solar Eclipse Today. I'm Staying Juicy, or So I'm Told.

For some, maybe, but apparently not for us.  Here's what EnviroCan says is in store for us on the wet coast:

Rain, at times heavy, continues. A series of storms moving onshore from the Pacific will bring waves of rain to the South Coast through today and tonight. Juicy saturated air will bring rainfalls exceeding the warning criteria of 50 mm in places. The storm system is expected to move east of the regions by Saturday morning. In strong southwest flow patterns like this, air channelled through Barkley Sound will bring heavy rain to the area from Qualicum Beach to Fanny Bay on the east coast of Vancouver Island. The rain here should ease to a few showers this evening as the front shifts to the east. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Rainfall Warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected. Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please monitor local media or Weatheradio.

"Juicy" air?  Juicy as in just waiting to be squeezed?  Juicy delicious?
