Following a wet weekend, the Metro Vancouver weather forecast calls for a toasty, sunny week ahead starting on Tuesday, Aug.13.
Environment Canada calls for a 30 per cent chance of showers in the morning and a high of 22 C on Monday, Aug. 12. Following this, however, Tuesday is expected to be mainly sunny with a high of 23 C and 26 C inland.
With that being said, the temperature is expected to feel more like 28 C with humidity and 30 C inland.
Wednesday’s forecast calls for bright sunshine and a high of 24 C and 27C. Following this, Thursday and Friday are expected to reach highs of 23 C and 22 C, respectively. Saturday and Sunday will see a mix of sun and cloud.
Evening lows are expected to fall between 13 C and 15 C throughout the week.
Back in April, Environment Canada told Vancouver Is Awesome that the Lower Mainland would likely see above average temperatures in late spring and into summer. Further, it noted that the summer season would likely be warmer overall. Environment Canada updated its forecast in July, noting that the warm weather pattern would continue throughout the season.
As such, residents of the Lower Mainland should have a plan in place for wildfire smoke events before they happen.
