There’s about a 20 per cent chance of rain this week in Richmond, according to the Weatherhood sensors across the city.
The Richmond News’ hyper-local weather forecasting tool is calling for the slight chance of precipitation on Wednesday and Friday.
Temperatures are expected to cool off starting Monday, with the mercury forecast to drop as low as a high of 18C in East Richmond (Weatherhood station at Highway 91 and Knight Street) on Wednesday.
However, the heat will gradually be turned back up for that part of Richmond starting Thursday, with a forecast high of 25C, rising to 28 on Friday, 30 on Saturday and 32 on Sunday.
Similar temperatures are expected through the week at two of the other five Weatherhood stations at Richmond City Centre (BCIT campus) and Bridgeport (No. 5 and River roads).
It will be a little milder this week at the three other neighbourhoods, according to the forecast for Terra Nova (Quilchena Golf Club), Steveston Harbour (Steveston Harbour Authority) and Steveston Village.

The stations are all scientifically calibrated at UBC’s Atmospheric Sciences department, and our stations are placed in a way that is meteorologically sound: away from trees, buildings, walls, and major obstructions.
