Sunshine for the South

6-08-2013 pic6.jpg

The North/South orientation of an Upper Low /High has created a strong westerly flow onto the coast today. Like a "weather highway", this pattern has guided a weak trough onto the Central Coast this morning, bringing showers to that area and a cloudy start to the day throughout Metro Vancouver and the South Coast. Weak ridging will help clear skies to the South and that sunshine will help warm temperatures  up to around  20C. Cooler wet weather will continue for the Central and North Coast today.
