Looking ahead to the Canada Day Long Weekend!

High streamflow advisory has ended for the Southern Interior, however a flood watch advisory continues for the Elk River region near Fernie. 

Most of BC's weather is still being controlled by the upper level trough over the Pacific.  This area of low pressure will keep clouds and showers in the forecast today and tomorrow for most of the BC Interior. However there will be a change in the weather pattern in the next few days.  The first picture shows the upper level air flow and the current jet streak (highlighted in green). As we get closer to the weekend, the highest wind in the streak will shift to the right of the trough, and that will help weaken the pattern.  This will allow a ridge to build into BC from the South by Friday.  This ridge will help dry out the air mass over BC inland sections this Canada Day Long weekend and bring sunshine.
