    Whistler Weather forecast

    A ridge of high pressure over the BC interior will maintain cool and dry conditions today. Meanwhile a Pacific frontal system developing offshore is forecast to approach the coast early Tuesday. With a strong southwest flow aloft, there is some uncertainty with the timing of features affecting the coast. However Wednesday will likely see rain taper off slightly as the Pacific frontal system moves northward. Other frontal features line up to bring more rain and warming for Thursday and Friday.
