Week of wet weather ahead for Metro Vancouver
Right after a week of sub-zero temperatures and sunshine, the forecast calls for continuous cloud cover with periods of rainfall until at least the end of the month.
Within Vancouver over the coming days, the temperature will peak at approximately 9°C during the daytime with evening lows reaching no more than 5°C.
For today, Environment Canada forecasters expect strong wind gusts of up to 60 km/h beginning at noon and up to 30 mm of rainfall by evening.
This low pressure system will dump snow within the interior of the province and at upper elevations, for what could be the first major snowfall for many resorts across B.C.
Up to 50 centimetres of snow will fall at Whistler by Monday evening. Earlier this week, Whistler Blackcomb announced that it would be opening on Saturday, November 22 – a week earlier than scheduled.
