Summer is finally arriving in Metro Vancouver after one of the coldest and wettest springs in recent memory.
A strong high pressure system is expected to take over starting tomorrow and strengthen as the week progresses, bringing an extended period of warm temperatures and sunshine.
The Weather Network’s long-term forecast currently predicts the summery conditions could last through the end of the month, right up until the Canada Day long weekend:
Environment Canada’s forecast also predicts a major uptick in temperatures and enduring sunshine, at least over the short-term.
Daytime temperature highs near the water at the Vancouver International Airport weather station will steadily climb throughout the week from 20°C today to 26°C by the weekend. In the Fraser Valley, temperatures could reach 29°C or higher during the same period.
Summer solstice, the official start of summer and the day with the longest daylight, is tomorrow.
