The start of April brought a bizarre mix of weather to Metro Vancouver, including a mix of hail and snow.
This week’s forecast looks to be much more stable, as Environment Canada calls for fair skies and mild temperatures throughout the week.
Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday are forecast to be clear skies while Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday feature a mix of sun and clouds.
Daytime highs are expected to float around the double digits, although the weather agency said that inland temperatures could reach as high as 17°C or 18°C.

Overnight temperatures remain in the single digits, however, with weekly lows ranging between 2°C and 6°C.
Keep in mind, however, that no matter how great the weather may be, measures such as social distancing and only making essential trips still apply.
Sunny and warm conditions in Metro Vancouver often lead to large, dense crowds on the seawall, beaches, and parks, countering safety measures implemented by health and government officials.
While BC Health Officials are encouraged by the effects of social distancing so far, Provincial Health Officer Bonnie Henry reminded residents that we’re “not out of the woods by any means yet.”
“We are not to be outside in groups, we are not to be playing basketball, we’re not to be out sitting together in large groups on the beach watching the beautiful sunsets,” she said previously. “When we’re out in groups like that the chances are somebody will be exposed to this virus and we’ll bring it home to our family and our communities, and that is what is going to spread the virus.”
