Normal winter is forecast to resume in Vancouver this week, with warmer temperatures and heavy rainfall expected to hit the city on Monday.

According to a special weather statement from Environment Canada, a “plume of moisture” from the Philippines is currently streaming towards the BC coast.

That plume is bringing a series of increasingly mild Pacific storms to Vancouver, says the statement, with rain forecast all week.

Meanwhile, the blocking ridge trapping Arctic air on the coast and keeping us all in subzero temperatures will weaken, allowing it to finally warm up.

In Vancouver, we’ll be positively basking in the heat, as the mercury rises to 8°C on Monday and 10°C on Wednesday.

However, according to Environment Canada, while Vancouver enjoys warmer temperatures, inland areas will take a little longer to heat up.

Which handily means that while it’s raining in Vancouver, it will still be snowing in Whistler – at least on Monday.
