place south of Explorer on Sunday. Meanwhile, an Arctic ridge of high
pressure will lie over the Northern BC Interior.

Moderate to strong east or northeast winds will tend to veer to

some of the southern and central waters today. Gale to storm force
easterlies will develop off the west coast of Vancouver Island on
Sunday ahead of the next low. Strong to gale force northeast outflow
winds will develop through the mainland inlets as the ridge builds.
