After a lengthy streak of dry weather, Environment Canada is calling for rain in Metro Vancouver’s forecast.

Widespread smoke will also remain across the region, although Environment Canada said in a statement that “further improvements” in air quality are expected by the weekend.

Cloudy skies are expected to return by Sunday, although showers could return for a brief period overnight.

Environment Canada is also calling for relatively higher temperatures as the week continues. Wednesday is expected to have a high of 26°C inland, although it’ll feel more like 31°C due to humidity.

Thursday is also calling for a high of 27°C due to humidity, and daytime highs between 18°C and 20°C are expected throughout the rest of the week.
