A frontal wave continues to be felt across much of the province, but it is slowly moving away and snow will taper off gradually today. A weakening cold front will move through the south coast and southern interior with unremarkable precip amounts over the southern interior. A few centimeters are expected into the Columbias which is a bit more than forecast yesterday. Into the lower mainland, precipitation is expected to start a bit later in the morning which will allow more warming into the north shore before the precipitation begins. It’ll still be snow likely at the ridgetops, but rain further down. Meanwhile, pacific moisture overrunning the stationary arctic front will continue to support moderate precip over the northern Rockies, and light to moderate rates over the northwest and white pass areas on Thursday.
The only remarkable thing about Friday is that it’s the only unremarkable day this week. Precipitation is generally trace to light everywhere.
Saturday is a return to snow over much of the norther two thirds of the province again, just like with this recent storm. The northern regions get into the warm sector and freezing levels rise, but snow will still be the precip of choice.
On Sunday a cold front passes with light precip
amounts and plummeting freezing levels.
Monday has a weak frontal wave moving onto the north coast.
