Wet, Windy & Cold Friday.. Heavy Snow for the Mountains, but NOT for Us...Nov 14th

  • After breaking a second temperature record in a row yesterday at 13.9 degrees at YVR (tied from 1971), more seasonal air in place today
  • The warm 'pocket' of air has sunk south, bringing a few evening and early morning showers along the boundary as it passed. But some sunny holes in the sky this afternoon across Vancouver along with afternoon highs in the 10-11 range.
  • The next front is quickly approaching from the NW and will bring rain starting tomorrow morning along with colder air. Afternoon highs this weekend down to 5-8 degrees across Vancouver
  • As temperatures drop, so too will the snow levels..getting down to around 300-400 m Friday night into Saturday morning - This is the best chance to some wet snow at higher elevations of Vancouver IE Burnaby, north shore, the usual suspects 
  • The real story I think for the weekend is the fresh snow that the local mountains will receive ..the cool air in place for Vancouver...and the gusty winds Friday into Saturday
  • There is a good chance we will see some sun Saturday afternoon behind the front... unsettled weather will stick around for Sunday
  • Temps will remain on the cool side early next week when the pattern looks to turn stormy...could be looking at a couple soggy says to kick off next week

Switching Seasons Across the Country
  • With the jet stream changing shape starting today, a dramatic shift in temperatures are on tap between western & eastern Canada
  • After a few days of record-breaking mild temps in BC & AB, a drastic drop will bring +10 cm and minus 10 temps to Calgary, along with winter driving conditions for the BC mountain passes
  • Meanwhile, its the opposite story for parts of southern ON, QC and parts of the Maritimes. Temps will climb into the low to mid teens by the end of the weekend
