Blue skies for first day of spring on B.C.'s South Coast
Slight risk of a brief shower in the Fraser Valley on Friday afternoon
Blue skies are greeting the first official day of spring across B.C.'s South Coast, says CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe.
At 9:57 a.m. PT, the sun's rays crossed over the Earth's equator from the southern to the northern hemisphere, an event that happens only twice a year (in the spring and the fall).
With a moist northwesterly flow off the ocean, temperatures are a touch on the cool side today and tomorrow with afternoon highs around 9 C. A few isolated showers have been popping up in the Fraser Valley as well. so there is a slight risk of a brief shower once again tomorrow afternoon.
Saturday will be more overcast with showers, but expect a return to the sun on Sunday.
