Fog and low cloud have made for a grey start for Friday across the South Coast.

Victoria and the rest of eastern Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast is under a fog advisory, with poor to zero visibility through Friday morning. 

Parts of Metro Vancouver may clear up in the late afternoon, with temperatures back up to a seasonal 6 C.

The weekend dilemma

An arctic front is moving back down across the province towards the coast for Saturday. At the same time, a Pacific system is tracking towards the South Coast.

Some forecast models keep the cold front out of the South coast, meaning a few showers Saturday morning, seasonal temperatures, and mainly cloudy skies.

Other forecast models have modified arctic air moving into the South Coast before the rain gets to us — that would mean a clear but cold Saturday and Sunday.

Either way — it's not a wash-out weekend. Stay tuned for forecast updates through the day.
