For the forecast, a broad upper trough will remain over the area for the next several days with bands of cool moisture moving through our zone. We may see a shift by Thursday as the high pressure begins to migrate towards us. Today we will be in a moist Westerly flow associated with a warm front with periods of light rain expected for most of the day, a cold front will follow this evening into Wednesday with the freezing level dropping well below the local peaks. There is a slight  chance of a break Tuesday afternoon. As of now Wednesday looks mostly cloudy with intermittent showers and cooler temperatures. Thursday will likely be unsettled and the ridge should strengthen by Friday. Models are not in agreement beyond Thursday so hope to have a better picture by Friday.

    Deep upper trough in the area with a 5270 m low over the Northwest corner of BC.

    Light rain with an associated warm front today.

    Cooler weather tomorrow with the FL dropping to 1800 meters.

    Light intermittent showers for Wednesday. FL down to around 1800 meters.

    Weak high pressure forecasted to build for Thursday.

   Drier conditions for Saturday, with a Northwest flow aloft.

   Looks like the high strengthens for Sunday.
