  • Lingering moisture and an upper level low moving south of BC this am led to a few morning showers across the valley as well as thunderstorms for our friends in Seattle
  • Stronger northwesterly winds are kicking in and clearing things out nicely for most this afternoon, And winds will begin easing this afternoon
  • Our ridge of high pressure holds for tomorrow bringing a mix of sun and cloud to the south coast, just a slight chance of grey morning for some tomorrow
  • A weakening low pressure system will sneak in around the high pressure for Thursday bringing the chance of morning showers to Vancouver before clearing back up
  • Chance of rain again for Friday & Saturday but not a lot of consistency in the models for high confidence yet on this one..looks like back to the sun though for the Thanksgiving Sunday & Monday

  • Not that snow in the north is normally news-worthy but an intense low pressure system will be bringing up to 20 cm of snow by tonight along with 100 km/h winds gusts! Wind & Snowfall warnings are in place and winds have been gusting to 70-100 km/h for the past 12 hours!
  • Farther north on Baffin Island the same system will bring more like 30 cm of snow
