It looks like fog is likely in the morning Saturday but should clear up around noon.  A sunny Saturday Valentines Day? Seems incredible to consider, but we can hope!

It will also stay warm with temperatures reaching 10°C or better.  In fact next week the models are approaching 20°C along parts of the BC and Washington coasts.

Meanwhile. The other side of North America is bone cold and buried in snow.  What is going on?
