Vancouver is set to get warmer weather this week than we’ve had all year, and it could finally signal the arrival of spring.
Environment and Climate Change Canada is forecasting a high of 15°C in the city Friday — a significant departure from the 15 centimetres of snow we were seeing just two short weeks ago.
A meteorologist with The Weather Network said Monday that the “warmest day of the year [is] brewing Friday and Saturday … Well-deserved, Vancouver.”

But now, the forecast has been updated showing even warmer temperatures on Friday and Saturday. Environment and Climate Change Canada is calling for 15°C and 14°C highs, respectively, while The Weather Network is being more conservative with 12°C and 13°C predictions.
So get that spikeball set out and leave the winter jacket at home — we’re about to have a beautiful weekend.
