- Other than early morning fog, skies are blue and temperatures continue to heat up this week for much of the province
- High pressure is now well in place and tomorrow, the flow around the ridge will bring winds in offshore - our warmest push. Temperatures inland could reach 30 degrees with YVR looking to hit 25 tomorrow
- Fog on Thursday and Friday may be more extensive and linger a little longer but warm temps and afternoon sunny skies will continue to be the story as the high pressure holds off the coast, directing weather up and over towards BC's NW.
- At this point, it looks like the Summer weather holds through Saturday. Some indication that we will see showers Saturday night but there is also a chance the showers may hold off until Monday. Either way the pattern breaks down fully next week for a return to Fall. But Sunday is still up in the air at this point.
