This morning will start cloudy again but this should be the last day of low cloud as we shift back to an Arctic outflow type situation.

The great image below shows the dry, and cold, air streaming out of the Interior, over the Island and out to the Pacific by Tuesday morning.

That is a pretty clear signal that cold air is on the way and by Wednesday morning our forecast low is minus 5.

Environment Canada has snow in the forecast for Thursday and Friday but the UWash models are completely dry until at least Saturday so we will have to wait for things to shake down.

They all agree on the cold and the sun though so bundle up and get your sunglasses out.

Happy Monday!
