Wagstaffe's Weather: A warmer Tuesday for Vancouver

High pressure is now firmly in place across B.C., meaning blue skies and warming temperatures for the whole province.

Temperatures will ramp up by a degree or two each day this week

If you enjoyed Monday's weather, there's lots more of that ahead.

High pressure is now firmly locked in place across the province, and that's where it will stay right through to next weekend.

Although temperatures are a little on the chilly side Tuesday morning — just 4 C for Vancouver — the sun will quickly warm us up through the mid-morning.

Afternoon highs should hit 13 C for areas near the water and as high as 18 C inland. 

After that, temperatures will steadily climb through the week with record-breaking 20 C highs not out of the question for the end of the week.
