Wagstaffe's Weather: Blue sky Thursday for Vancouver

High pressure is holding strong across B.C. for the next couple of days bringing sunshine and warm afternoon temperatures.

Wednesday was a nice reminder of what the sunshine can do for Vancouver's mood. And there's lots more of it in the forecast.

Thursday morning will start off chilly again — down to 2 C for much of Metro Vancouver, though warming up to an 11 C for the airport and more like 15 C inland.

And then there's the sun. Blue sky for most of the province on Thursday. And we keep the sun through Friday as well.

At this point it look like the high-pressure ridge will start to break down on Saturday — but hopefully we will get one more day out of it before the showers return on Sunday.
