Expect cool and dry: Squamish's late-November forecast

Chilly and dry week ahead with mix of sun and clouds.

This last week of November looks like it will be increasingly chilly, but dry, with a mix of sun and clouds expected.

Squamish meteorologist Jason Ross says a ridge of high pressure will remain over southern B.C. through the first half of the week, keeping conditions cool and dry with areas of fog along the Strait of Georgia. 

The Weatherhood app, which includes data from a weather station on The Squamish Chief's roof downtown, says it will be 7 C today, dropping to 0 C overnight. 

Sunset today (Nov. 27) will be at 4:20 p.m. (EGAD!)

Tuesday's high will be 6 C, with a dip down to 0 C again Tuesday night. 

On Wednesday, the high will be 5 C, with a low of -1 C overnight. 

Ross says the ridge of high pressure will weaken and move off to the east by midweek, opening the door for a series of Pacific frontal systems that will move across the area late in the week and over the weekend.

According to Weatherhood, the high on Thursday will be 5 C, and the overnight low will be a wintery -2 C. Friday is set to see a high of 4 C, with an overnight dip down to 0 C. 

Remember that mountain roads can be icy. It is the law to have winter-appropriate tires on the Sea to Sky Highway from Oct. 1 through spring.
