Jan 18 2021, 5:37 pm

Metro Vancouver’s forecast is calling for a chance of flurries and below normal temperatures this week.

According to Environment Canada, much of the Lower Mainland has seen above average temperatures throughout the first half of January. The weather agency says that “temperatures are on track to take a dive” and are likely to stay that way throughout the remainder of the month.

“Throughout the month of January, the Vancouver Harbour weather station has recorded daytime highs of 7°C and 13°C, and overnight lows of 2°C and 8°C,” an Environment Canada meteorologist tells Daily Hive.

“Normal temperatures for this time of year are highs of 6°C and lows of 0°C. That gives you some perspective as to what’s about to happen with the temperatures.”

According to Environment Canada, temperatures will first shift to “near normal conditions” starting Monday night, followed by “below normal temperatures” starting later this week.

“For daytime highs, residents can expect low to mid-single digits. Overnight lows will creep down to 0°C and maybe even the -1°C or -2°C realm.”

Throughout this week, Metro Vancouver’s forecast is calling for a mixture of sun, clouds, and showers. Not to mention a 60% chance of flurries across Saturday night and Sunday.

Bundle up, Vancouver. And stay warm.
