Wagstaffe's Weather: Tuesday morning showers before a break

Monday night rain will taper to showers for Tuesday morning, and sunny breaks are not out of the question.

Lingering showers on Tuesday morning should give way to a few sunny breaks by the afternoon. It's a short-lived break though — clouds and the risk for a few showers will move back in by Tuesday evening. 

A new system is pushing into Vancouver from the south. But it's not a guarantee that the showers will make it across Metro Vancouver before the system sinks south again. 

Temperatures will once again be mild Tuesday afternoon — getting close to the double digits once again across the South Coast.

It's a drier forecast again for Wednesday before Wednesday night rain moves in and sticks around for Thursday.
