Just in time for the Honda Celebration of Light and Vancouver Pride, the weather forecast for Metro Vancouver is calling for at least a week of non-stop sunshine and possibly record-breaking warm temperatures for certain areas.

According to Environment Canada, temperatures will reach 24°C by the water at Vancouver International Airport today, and with humidity factored in it will feel like 29°C. The maximum will be higher further inland where temperatures will soar to 28°C.

Similar conditions are expected for Tuesday, before temperatures climb up to 25°C near water and 30°C inland by Thursday. This will continue through the start of the weekend, dropping a few degrees to 21°C by the water on Sunday when the Vancouver Pride Parade kicks off in downtown.

Elsewhere in the South Coast – in the Fraser Valley, Squamish, and Whistler – temperatures will reach or exceed 30°C for much of the coming week.

The sunny and relatively hot conditions are being caused by a powerful high pressure system over much of Western Canada. At the moment, it is pushing down a weak low pressure system over Washington State and Oregon.
