The uninterrupted stretch of warm and sunny weather in the Metro Vancouver region will continue for at least two more days.
Environment Canada’s latest forecast indicates temperatures today will reach a high of 23°C by the water at Vancouver International Airport and 29°C further inland away from the moderating effects of the water.
Similar but slightly cooler conditions on Saturday are expected, transitioning into more seasonal values by Sunday with rainfall and temperatures dropping to the high teens. The low pressure system is expected to remain throughout much of the week.
Record-breaking warm temperatures in recent weeks has melted much of this past winter’s snowpack. The snow levels in the local mountains are at what they would normally be in June.
Following last year’s drought, water restrictions in the region will begin two weeks early on Sunday, May 15.
