Taste Of Winter Comes to an End...Warming Up This Week...Nov 12th
After a few days of below seasonal afternoon highs and frigid overnight lows...temps will begin moderating this week. YVR only 5.3 yesterday and for the past 3 nights temps have dropped down to -1.
For drivers heading home to metro Vancouver there will be significant snow for central and north coastal sections- the snowfall warnings have now ended though but 10-15 cm have fallen. Same story in west Kelowna; 10cm on the ground! But just light flurries for the rest of the day. Snow flurries have also hit the Sea to Sky Highway North of Squamish and the Coquihalla Hwy between Merritt & Kelowna. Amounts will likely be <5cm. Check http://www.drivebc.ca/ before you head out.
- A couple of showery days to start the week as temps climb back up to seasonal afternoon highs of 9
- By Wednesday a ridge of high pressure will build in meaning a few dry days from Wed-Fri
- Cypress opens this Wednesday!
