A ridge of high pressure building over BC will give generally sunny skies and warm conditions over much of the province today. Temperatures will generally be a few degrees warmer on Tuesday than today with UMOS temperature guidance showing that trend. Convective activity over BC Interior will be less today than Sunday but still isolated thunderstorms will develop this afternoon over much of the eastern Interior. An upper ridge building in from the west will result in convective activity peaking by mid-afternoon in most locations. In the extended period an upper trough will push across BC on Wednesday. This feature has the potential to generate some severe convection but being day 3 it is too early to have anything in the forecast. The Global model shows the most potential for convection on Wednesday. On Thursday and Friday a weak upper ridge will persist off the BC Coast.
