    Spring then winter?

    Whistler Weather forecast

    A ridge of high pressure will continue to build tonight and will bring sunshine and mild temperatures. A cold front will reach the coast on Sunday night bringing snow by Sunday evening and will usher in a much colder and snowy pattern.



    Next week..

    Back to Winter..
    A series of lows moving in from the pacific will bring snow to the valley. A deep low in the gulf of Alaska will develop Tuesday bringing a strong westerly flow to the area. Bringing copius amounts of snow again. Another system Thursday looks a little warmer and juicy as well. In behind cool air for once.

    In the mean time a nice weekend especially Saturday as spring like conditions and freezing levels topping out around 1900m. Catch some rays, and replenish that vitamin D.

    Ridge of high pressure

    Whistler Weather forecast

    A ridge of high pressure will build over the South Coast today in the wake of the weak front that moved through the coast last night. This will bring a drying trend today with at least a partial clearing expected. The ridge will move to the east on Thursday, giving way to a front approaching from the Pacific. The front will be weak and will tend to dissipate as it arrives over Vancouver Island but it is still expected to produce some clouds over the area on Thursday with a slight chance of precipitation by Thursday night.
