For the forecast, the low to the South is moving inland but there is still chance of some isolated showers in the area for today, as it spins cloud our way in a Southerly Flow. The air mass is slightly unstable so there is a chance of some thunderstorms.  Unsettled conditions will prevail for the week with a chance of showers each day, some days cloudier than others. Another low to the North will move into the area mid week.  Models are in disagreement to the timing and amount of precipitation. The freezing level will be well above the local peaks this week.


    Low is moving inland over Oregon.


    As the low to the South moves East the low to the North will continue the unsettled cycle.


     Low moves down the BC coast this week.
