Many high temperature records were broken yesterday across BC.

For the forecast, upper level ridge moved East yesterday evening, this allowed onshore flow with cooler temperatures and cloud development to occur. Stratus cloud development near the ocean is likely for tomorrow into Thursday. Expect unsettled conditions into Friday with sunny periods, cloud development and even the slight chance of some isolated showers. Overall some fairly nice weather for the week.  A broad upper trough is forecasted to move into the area on Saturday with a brief period of potential light rain from Saturday evening into Sunday afternoon. This low to the North appears to be pushed out of the area as the high pressure rebuilds for Monday. Much disagreement in the models for the weekend so more on that in the next post.

    Low pressure will influence the weather for the week.




    Still early for this model but some precipitation is forecasted for Saturday.



    The low is still a factor in our weather for the week into the weekend.
