  • After another chilly low of 3 this morning for YVR, there is still a chill in the air today.. but lots of warm sunshine
  • Our strong ridge of high pressure holds today and right through to the early next week continuing to bring in mainly sunny skies and warming temperatures
  • Tomorrow though, a low pressure system that is bringing rain to north and central coastal sections today, may swing a few more clouds across the region for more of a mix of sun and cloud...our high pressure should protect us through from any rain
  • Temperatures will also begin to moderate today..still looking at an afternoon just a touch below our seasonal 15... back to that 15 for tomorrow and by Friday looking to get into the high teens and low 20s by the weekend. By Sun/Mon inland areas could be feeling like the high 20s!
  • This will be about 10-15 degrees above normal and skies after tomorrow will be mainly clear. High temperature records are expected to fall this weekend right across the province
