The FL will hover just below the 3000 meter range and we should see clouds passing through by this afternoon.. Similar for Monday morning with more cloud development with the chance of an isolated shower Monday afternoon and even a chance of some sunny breaks. The low off Vancouver Island will send overcast skies and light precipitation to the area on Tuesday. The FL could come down to as low as 1700 meters on Tuesday night. Unsettled weather returns on Wednesday with another weak front for Thursday. Cool and showery weather is expected for the remainder of the week.
