B.C. South Coast's long-range forecast remains dry and sunny 2:18

An upper-level ridge of high pressure is keeping a protective dome of sunny skies locked in for the South Coast for the next few days, says CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe.

Morning fog will continue to roll in along the coast with cooler temperatures overnight, but they will burn off quickly in the sun. Afternoon temperatures will remain at or above the seasonal 23 to 24 C range through to the weekend.

The next weathermaker in the long-range forecast is developing right now down in California and may bring the risk of mountain thunderstorms beginning this weekend, but no widespread rain or clouds at this point.
