Sunny weather and highs of 26°C in Metro Vancouver this week

Dec 19 2017, 3:16 pm

Are we experiencing an early start to summer? More warm and sunny weather is ahead for Metro Vancouver over the coming seven days.

Environment Canada’s latest forecast indicates a strong ridge of high pressure will remain over the South Coast until at least early next week.

As a result, sunny skies will continue to hover over Metro Vancouver with temperatures reaching a high of 22°C by the water and up to 26°C within inland areas. These temperatures are far higher than the month’s average high of 17°C.

However, the conditions could lead to short periods of localized rainfall and thunderstorms for Abbotsford, Squamish and Whistler. Air-mass thunderstorms were also reported along the Sea to Sky corridor between Squamish and Whistler over the May long weekend.
