- A few lingering showers are all that stand in the way of another decent afternoon across the lower mainland. Another 10-25 mm fell across metro Vancouver last night, with another 3-10 cm for the north shore mountains, 9 for Whistler. Winds gusts were reported at 47 km/h last night as well as storm #4 swung across the south coast
- Skies will remain a mix of sun and cloud through the afternoon & evening with mild temperatures and abating winds
- Clouds will roll in tomorrow mid-morning ahead of powerful storm #5 this week. Winds will pick up again tomorrow morning with some areas of the south coast seeing gusts to 100 km/h from the SE before shifting to the west later in the day...but staying strong at 80 km/h. The rain will start during the afternoon
- Special weather statements are in place across the south coast for potentially damaging winds - we may see warnings issued later today
- Yet another storm is forecast to track across the South Coast Sunday night with more strong winds and heavy rain expected. We may see a brief break from the rain Saturday night into Sunday morning before Sunday's rain begins
- Showery weather will continue through early next week with a moist westerly flow
- Now for some Valentine's Day love - full moon tonight will make for a nice evening stroll (but with gusty shower risk ;))
Very windy weekend ahead for the west coast of B.C. Stay tuned to Environment Canada for the latest warnings.

Eastern Canada Still Getting Hit Tonight...
- The same deadly winter storm that has been pummeling the US over the past 2 days pushed into the Maritimes and parts of eastern Quebec last night
- Several school cancellations and power outages were reported across the east early today as the storm continues to bring heavy rain, snow and powerful winds.
- Snow & blowing snow associated with the system caused major problems for Quebec last night- dozens of flights cancelled out of YUL and a large section of the Trans-Canada was closed near the Gaspe Peninsula
- Much of the Maritimes & NFLD will still be dealing with the storm today, as cold winds on the back side of the storm change rain back over to snow late this evening

..And Storm #2 Hits Tomorrow
- No rest for the wicked - People in Atlantic Canada won't have much time to recuperate from the Valentine's Day system before a second storm in the one-two punch is set to bring more snow and strong winds to the region this weekend.
- Rain, snow, winds and storm warnings are in place right across Atlantic Canada for Saturday night into Sunday extreme winter weather
- Most folks will only get a 12-18 hour window between storms, with the second potentially being stronger than the first
- Nice thought from NFLD meteorologist Ryan Snoddon- show some love to friends, families, neighbours by helping them shovel the snow tonight - it's very heavy.
