Few more days of fog for parts of B.C.'s South Coast

Although parts of Vancouver woke up to sun for the first time in a week, other sections were still socked in thanks to thick fog, says CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe.

High pressure and an inversion are still in place, so it will be warmer at higher elevations again today. The biggest forecast challenge comes with an upper-level, low-pressure system that may actually help to deepen the fog coverage for Friday and Saturday.

Fog will build back in tonight for the Georgia Strait, and there is a chance the fog may lead to morning drizzle for some. Parts of the South Coast may experience afternoon clearing tomorrow, but it may be harder for the sun to break through with that low-pressure system in place.
Big changes in the pattern finally come for Sunday, when an arctic cold front will slide down across B.C. ushering in much cooler temperatures along with clear and dry conditions.

There is a good chance Vancouver will remain dry for the rest of the month. That would make this October the city's second driest on record, with only 25 mm so far. October 1987 only saw 20.4 mm. Averages for Metro Vancouver are closer to 113 mm.
