A few breaks, but also a few convective showers

The South Coast will continue to see unsettled weather with a few breaks and a chance of a shower for Sunday. Metro Vancouver will once again see the possibility of convective showers - showers caused by uplift either against mountains or because of cooler air aloft - and the nature of these showers is that they are usually short in duration but could be heavy at times.  The next weather system moves in late Monday and into Tuesday with more rain in the forecast.

Here is a look at the precipitation forecast for Monday at 11am (18z).  You can see the system just to the southwest of the Lower Mainland, as it gets ready to sweep in late Monday.
