SATURDAY: SEESAW PATTERN IN DRY AND WET WEATHER
B.C. was once again ushered into the weekend with yet another round of rain drenching the coasts, and though Saturday did feature some breaks, the moisture soon returned with another round of showers set to last through Sunday morning.
Through Sunday, the west coast of Vancouver Island is in store for 30-50 mm, while much of Metro Vancouver could see 15-30 mm, with as much as 40 mm in the higher elevations to the north.
With rising freezing levels, some 5-10 cm of snow is also possible for the coastal and Rocky Mountain passes through Sunday morning as well, ending through the day.
Once the rain peters out Sunday morning, winds will become quite strong, picking up along the coast where gusts could exceed 80 km/h at times, while peaks of 40-60 km/h are expected further inland.
The extended break in the rain is forecasted to continue Monday and last through the first half of Tuesday, before the next parade of systems begin mid-week.
