Bring on the heat! Temperatures in Metro Vancouver are expected to soar several digits above what has been experienced so far this Victoria Day long weekend.

According to Environment Canada, a high of 22°C is forecasted today for the main weather station at Vancouver International Airport, and similar low-elevation areas next to sea water can expect similar conditions.

However, areas further inland such as Burnaby, Coquitlam, and Surrey could experience temperatures reaching up to 26°C.

Elsewhere across the South Coast, similar heat is expected, with highs of 27°C in Abbotsford and Squamish as well as 25°C in Whistler Village, Victoria International Airport, and Sechelt on the Sunshine Coast.

This is the first time since 1999 that Vancouver has experienced a sunny, rain-free Victoria Day long weekend.

While extended forecasts call for warm temperatures and sunshine to continue through the start of June, there could be a small blip in the weather from Tuesday night to Wednesday due to a chance of rainfall. But if this system arrives it will be very short-lasting, with summer-like conditions promptly resuming Thursday.
