Vancouver's break from the rain will be short-lived Wednesday afternoon — the next storm is right around the corner.

A few lingering showers will be the story for Wednesday morning across the South Coast, with a generally dry afternoon. Afternoon temperatures will be mild again at around 11 C for Vancouver.

The next Pacific system will start to spread rain across Metro Vancouver just in time for the evening commute, and it will be a wet and windy Wednesday overnight into Thursday morning.

Showers will stick around for much of Thursday before a third Pacific storm rolls in for Friday.

Temperatures, and snow levels, will be on the rise for the second half of the week as well. But these systems will mean big snow for Whistler.
