  • The few hours of high cloud this morning have sunk south of the border now and High pressure dominates across the province
  • Easterly winds around the high are not quite strong enough to counter a westerly sea breeze this afternoon so temps by the water around a seasonal 14. But inland feeling more like 17-19 this afternoon
  • Wednesday we will see more clear skies with temperatures peaking around the 16 degree mark for YVR, close to 20 inland as the easterly winds take over
  • By Thursday our onshore flow is back so look for a mix of sun and clouds and temps back to seasonal
  • Looks like the ridge weakens and low pressure slides in for Friday bringing cooler and wetter weather for Friday & Saturday
  • At this point we may get away with some sunny breaks for Sunday
