It's a mainly cloudy start to Tuesday across the South Coast, but high pressure will at least keep it dry for the day.

An approaching area of low pressure will bring a mix of sun and cloud as well as showers to central coastal sections of B.C., but Vancouver should stay protected by our high pressure ridge throughout the day.

Afternoon temperatures will get back up to a seasonal 7 C for Vancouver.

A bigger Pacific storm will push out that high pressure system for Wednesday, bringing rain through the second half of the week.

The good news? Snow levels will remain between 900 to 1000 meters for Wednesday and Thursday, meaning it should fall as snow for the local mountains.
