FORECASTERS: Jeremy Morris & Aurélie Desroches-Lapointe
Unsettled conditions caused by the upper low and associated trough tends to potential for spotty showers and thunderstorms across the province. Daytime warming may cause further destabilization of the air mass, further promoting thunder storms. On a larger spatial scale, there is currently no well defined surface system in our study zone, however a 500 hPa low is located above us. The low pressure system currently located over the Pacific Ocean off the Alaska panhandle is developing eastward, forming a trough off BC coast. As the system breaks apart upon reaching the coast mountains, models suggest that precipitation will reach our area by Tuesday evening or early Wednesday morning.
