Cold air on the way after sunny start to week

Blue skies will come with dropping temperatures over the next few days as arctic air filters down across the province, says CBC News Meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe.

A few flurries have been reported today in Abbotsford but most of the snow is staying south of the border as well as in the B.C. interior.

Mainly clear skies are the story right through Thursday with overnight lows dropping below zero and afternoons highs getting a few degrees cooler each day. By Thursday, Vancouver may not get above the zero degree mark.

With colder air in place by the end of the week, things may start to fall as snow by the time we hit Friday as a low pressure system develops off the coast bringing some moisture into play.

At this point, it just looks like light snow for Friday and Saturday but with the cold air hanging around for at least the next seven days, hints of an end of weekend/early next week storm may mean the first big snowfall for the South Coast.
