The dry spell ended yesterday at the Vancouver airport. 0.6mm of precip fell on the first day of August after a whole month of sunny and dry weather in July. Although no significant rain is expected, the chance of showers remain today and tomorrow as an upper low slowly progresses across Washington State over the next couple days. Thunderstorms storms will be possible for areas inland. Expect temps to be around 20 degrees today, a couple degrees below seasonal for Metro Vancouver. Looking ahead, we return to drier conditions on Sunday/Monday once the low weakens and moves east.
And it's now the North Coast's turn to get some drier weather. A lack of systems and an upper ridge building into your region will contribute to an inactive pattern. Prince Rupert will still have clouds and fog especially through the morning hours because of the cool temps, but inland sections are going to stay above seasonal over the next little while. In fact it was Terrace that won Canada's hot spot yesterday reaching highs of 33 degrees. More hot weather on the way for the inland sections of the North Coast today.
