Wagstaffe's Weather: Vancouver showers back for Wednesday

After a couple of days of record warmth and blue skies, the showers are back for the South Coast.

Well, it was a short-lived but nice reminder of what the next season will hold. But showers are back for Vancouver's Wednesday forecast.

Increasing clouds moved in overnight thanks to the fact that our high-pressure ridge, that had been ushering in the heat, has shifted eastward.

Watch for a few rounds of showers Wednesday morning, especially if you are in the north or western sections of Metro Vancouver.

By the afternoon, everyone will have had a few rounds of rain.

Temperatures are still mild though — getting up to 11 C for Vancouver. Snow levels are also high meaning rain for the local mountains. 

The South Coast will catch a bit of a break Thursday morning, but a new soggy system will slide in for Thursday afternoon.
