Taste of Fall Long Weekend Ahead...Aug 29th

  • Light showers are moving across Vancouver this morning along the leading edge of a frontal boundary
  • As the system continues to track eastward, skies will likely break-up again this afternoon as we get behind the front for some good sunny breaks along with breezy winds
  • Afternoon highs will only get up to about 20/21 for YVR
  • An unstable airmass will be the story for the long weekend, meaning scattered showers, afternoon temps in the high teens, but possible sunny breaks too. Look for breezy winds tomorrow morning as well
