Wagstaffe's Weather: Tuesday break for Vancouver

The South Coast will get a much-needed break from the steady rain before showers return on Wednesday.

After a washout past couple of days, enjoy a drier Tuesday across the South Coast. 

Monday's system is tracking eastward, so Vancouver will sit between two storms for much of the day.

Careful on the mountain passes though — fresh storm snow from Monday will make for winter driving conditions.

But snow levels were around 1,600 meters, which means more rain for the local mountains.

Skies will be mainly cloudy but look for some breaks throughout the day with afternoon highs around 11 C.

Showers will move back in Tuesday overnight into Wednesday and will last all day. And an even bigger storm will bring the steady rain back for Thursday and Friday with a return to seasonal temperatures.
