The next system in the parade of Pacific storms will move into Metro Vancouver mid-morning Friday.

Winds will be strong for the Sunshine Coast and the coasts of Vancouver Island where wind warnings are in place for 60 to 90 km/h gusts.

Localized power outages are not out of the question early Friday morning.

Steady rain and gusty winds will roll through Vancouver for much of Friday and through Friday night.

Our best chance of any hope of seeing the blue skies this weekend is early Saturday morning before — you guessed it — the next storm rolls in.

Expect a soggy Sunday.
