A high-pressure system is affecting Vancouver for the long haul, meaning dry weather, sunny afternoons and overnight fog, says CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe.

Temperatures will be quite mild all week, with 7 C to 8 C afternoon highs, but cool overnights. The main feature to watch for will be fog and low cloud developing through the overnights and lingering through the mornings. But there is a good chance it will burn off by the late mornings for sunny afternoons.

An inversion is building in along with the high pressure so temperatures will get into the double digits for the mountains. This weather pattern will last right through the weekend and into early next week. The best chance for rain will be a week from now.
