The past weekend brought a mixed bag of weather to Metro Vancouver, including pouring rain, gusts of wind, thunderstorms, and even hail.

Fortunately, this week’s forecast is a welcome improvement.

Environment Canada is calling for a mix of sun and cloud during the day on Monday and Tuesday, with a 60% chance of showers overnight on both days.

Wednesday during the daytime also calls for clouds and a 60% chance of showers, however, the forecast transitions to clear skies towards the second half of the week.

Orders from health and government officials to practice physical distancing still apply, however, regardless of the weather.

Warm and sunny conditions over prior weeks have drawn large, dense crowds to seawalls, beaches, and parks across Metro Vancouver.

While health authorities say that it’s essential to spend time outside and exercise, it’s even more important that individuals remain in small groups within their household and stay within their neighbourhood.
