Wagstaffe's weather: Nice weather to stick around for Tuesday

A strong high-pressure system is building in for the next couple of days across the South Coast, which will mean sunny skies and seasonal temperatures.

Early Tuesday morning, temperatures will be quite chilly because of the clear overnight conditions — getting down to the freezing mark. 

Temperatures should warm back up to a seasonal 9 C for the airport and closer to 13 C inland by the afternoon. And that will come with lots more sunshine.

A few more clouds will sneak in for Wednesday as an approaching Pacific system comes knocking on the door.

Our high pressure should hold the showers off but Vancouver will be left with a mainly cloudy mid-week, before the sun returns on Thursday.

Looks like we return to a showery pattern for Friday.
