A Stormy Day Today
A stronger system is sweeping through B.C. today, giving heavy snow and strong to extreme ridgetop winds. It will leave behind a colder and unstable airmass, which will give rise to scattered flurries on Sunday. The cold airmass will linger much of next week.
The next major system will likely arrive in southern B.C. late Tuesday and bring more snow.
The 500mb animation above shows an upper trough digging southward and bringing precipitation to B.C. It also pulls the cold arctic air southward.
The upper trough slowly moves through on Sunday. In the meanwhile, scattered flurries are expected. On Monday, the lack of upper features will give quieter weather.
The next upper trough is digging in southern BC on Tuesday and Wednesday. This will give another round of snow in the very southern part of the province.
