Sick of the rain yet? There is an end in sight, but we have a few more rounds still to get through.

Thursday morning will be mainly dry for Vancouver as the warm front of the latest approaching Pacific system tracks towards the Lower Mainland (seems like there's always one 'approaching,' eh?). 

The rain will start to ramp up for Vancouver Thursday afternoon, with highs around 8 C. Freezing levels will rise to about 1,000 meters, so it's a wet snow mix for the local mountains.

Thursday's rain will ease overnight, but for every warm front there is a cold that follows. The cold front of the same system will push in steady rain and warm temperatures ahead of it for Friday. 

Get ready for double digit temperatures to end the week and rain for the mountains.

At this point it looks like a mixed bag of showers with some breaks for the weekend and back to afternoon highs of around 8 C.

The long range points to a taste of Spring for next week — sunny and warm could be just around the corner.
