Stormy weekend marks start of fall on West Coast
But fall weather to hit Vancouver tonight
A cold front continues to slowly track toward Vancouver today, after bringing winds of over 100 km/h to parts of B.C.'s Central Coastal earlier this week, says CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe.
The front will likely take until this evening to reach Metro Vancouver. Overnight, rain will fall heavily at times, with gusty winds.
On Saturday, the South Coast will sit between two systems and, though temperatures will feel cool behind the exiting cold front, a hint of sun is on tap along with lingering showers.
By Sunday afternoon, the next Pacific low-pressure system will move onshore for an even windier and wetter Sunday night into Monday.
The autumnal equinox marking the official end of summer, when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night is nearly equal, happens on Sunday at 1:44 p.m. PT.
