Wagstaffe's Weather: Clear skies for Vancouver

The South Coast will finally get a break from the rain for a few days.

High pressure is building in across much of B.C., bringing dry skies and warming temperatures.

Vancouver will first have to get through a very chilly Wednesday morning. Temperatures will be down around just 2 C to start the day.

There may also be overcast skies to start. The new sinking air, associated with the high pressure system moving in, may end up locking in some low level clouds through the morning.

Still, increasing sunshine is expected as we head through the day.

It will be all blue skies by the time we hit Thursday and Friday, with temperatures inland feeling like the mid-teens. Some patchy fog may show up over the next few days in the morning.

The ridge looks to hold through the first half of the weekend, but at this point showers may return for Sunday.
