Today, there will be a brief lull between systems as an upper ridge builds over BC. The upper flow will ease and veer to the northwest with the ridge and most regions will only see small amounts of snow at most.

The ridge will not last long as another frontal system is forecast to move onto the North Coast by early Wednesday and then across the province on Thursday.

On Friday, the front will linger over South Columbias and South Rockies as it exits the province. Elsewhere a clearing trend is expected as cooler air follows in the wake of the front.

Models are in generally good agreement through Friday so confidence is moderate to high for the evolution of the pattern. The surface low that the GEM GLB was previously developing on Thursday has weakened with the latest run and is now in better agreement with other models. It appears that the front will be progressive and while giving significant precipitation amounts, will not be extreme.
