It appears that the cool and wet weather typically associated with fall will arrive a few weeks early this year.
According to Environment Canada, low pressure systems from the Pacific will bring periods of showers and cool temperatures to Metro Vancouver throughout most of the week. Daily temperature maximums will reach no greater than the high teens.
Whistler Blackcomb has already recorded its first dusting of snow for the season in the upper mountain areas.
By the start of next week, a high pressure system will move in to bring sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures reaching the low 20s.
The first official day of fall is September 22.
