  • A few showers lingered this morning after last night's rain but catching a few sunny breaks right now in between two systems. Winds remain fairly brisk by the water
  • The next system will roll in  this evening but it looks like metro Vancouver will remain mostly dry until then- it's the valley that will probably see heavier showers this afternoon in advance of the system
  • The real showers move in through the overnight with some heavier bands embedded, showers will linger through tomorrow morning before some sun returns Wednesday afternoon
  • It looks like Thursday will be a wet one again as the upper level low sitting off our coast directs yet another showery pulse onshore.
  • Good news though in the long range - it looks like a high pressure ridge pushes in for Friday evening through the first few days of the long weekend for a sunnier outlook

Deadly Tropical Storm Fernand Hits Mexico
  • Fernand made landfall last night in eastern Mexico and is now weakening
  • But the storm brought deadly flooding (reports of 15 people killed)
  • The storm lasted just 15 hours at tropical storm strength but heavy rains have caused the greatest death toll from a 2013 Atlantic named storm yet
  • The victims all died in in flash floods in Mexico's mountainous terrain west of Veracruz, due to landslides that came down upon houses.
  • Looks like the Atlantic hurricane season may finally start to pick up with a few disturbances lines up for next week
