If you’re wondering where in Vancouver counts as “inland,” expect high temperatures to be felt close to Vancouver’s downtown core.

When asked about what counts as “inland” for the Metro Vancouver area, Environment Canada tells Daily Hive that “there’s a pretty good temperature variation from the immediate coast.”

“You don’t have to go all that far east,” Meteorologist Matt MacDonald explains. “Even at the beginning of East Van, like around Commercial Drive, there’s enough of a temperature contrast.”

The definition of inland will depend on how much airflow is occurring throughout the lower mainland.

“Depending on the day, it could push marine air further inland so that you feel it in the Downtown Lower Eastside or even East Van,” he continues. “Typically, I’d say around Main Street or Commercial, you start feeling less of the ocean.”
