The winter weather continues on the south coast.
Global BC Meteorologist Mark Madryga says temperatures will be higher today in Metro Vancouver, but there will be a wind chill.
“The main part of the weather system is definitely moving through and off the the northeast. There is still the odd shower for today and temperatures well above freezing. But cold air is going to come starting right through tomorrow, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for the south coast meaning strong outflow winds in the Fraser Valley overnight and tomorrow again. In Metro Vancouver it will be dry Tuesday to Friday but cold with highs probably a little below freezing and lows down to minus 7.”
