Vancouver weather: five days of sunshine on the way

This forecast is sure to brighten your weekend...

The Vancouver weather forecast has included a great deal of rain lately. However, the forecast calls for a sunny change of pace this weekend.

Last month, Tuesday, December 11th was the wettest December 11 on record since the the weather records began at Vancouver International Airport in 1937. There was a rain total of 37.8 mm, which caused localized flooding in low-lying areas. A number of Twitter users shared images of the heavy flooding, and some of them show cars that are flooded well over the top of their tires.

Following this, Thursday, December 13 also set a record for the wettest December 13 since the records began in 1937. In addition, it saw even more rainfall than Tuesday, with a 10 am rain total of 45.8 mm. More images and videos of flooding were shared on Twitter, and there was a disruption on the SkyTrain.
