Wagstaffe's Weather: Showery South Coast Thursday

After a soggy Wednesday night, rain will ease to showers for Thursday — before another storm moves in.

Showers stick around but a few breaks in the clouds are not out of the question by the evening

It's been a wet week, and there are a few more systems still to get through.

Wednesday night's rain is tapering to showers Thursday morning for Vancouver. But another band of rain is looking to slide through midday. 

Freezing levels were high enough Wednesday overnight to bring rain to the local mountains, but as the South Coast gets behind the front Thursday morning, snow levels will drop to around 1,000 meters. 

Lingering showers will stick around for Thursday evening, although a few breaks in the clouds are not out of the question before the sun goes down.

The rain will be back in the early hours on Friday as a third Pacific storm moves in.
