Showers expected for May long weekend

Dec 19 2017, 9:57 pm

Get set for showers to hit Vancouver over the next few days, just in time for the May long weekend.

Yes, in true long weekend fashion the soaring temperatures that Vancouver has been experiencing over recent weeks are giving way to cloudy skies and showers just in time for Victoria Day.

The showers are due to set in on Thursday and carry right through until Monday with a possible break on Saturday, when the glowing hot orb of magma in the sky might make a welcome appearance. (Maybe plan your first public outdoor pool outing of the season for exactly then.)

Temperatures will hit highs of 18°C and lows of 11°C across Metro Vancouver between now and Monday as an area of low pressure moves into Vancouver.
