Wind-Rain Relationships in Southwestern British Columbia
Building envelope failures in Southwestern British Columbia have brought to light the strong influence of wind-driven rain on building envelopes. This study examines wind and rainfall data collected throughout the year from 12 meteorological stations: four on Vancouver Island and eight in the Lower Mainland. Results indicate that prominent wind directions during rain, as well as maximum wind speed, vary with location. Furthermore, all stations exhibited a marked difference in the wind direction and frequency of higher wind speeds for wet hours versus all hours.
