If your upcoming Canada Day long weekend plans include a barbeque, picnic, hike, or anything held outdoors, you may want to reevaluate said plans – or at least think of a backup plan.

According to Environment Canada, this coming weekend could be filled with rain and showers could hit the forecast from Saturday, all the way through until the Tuesday after.

And no matter what direction the weather takes this coming weekend, high percentages of humidity are to be expected.

If it’s any consolation, the extra showers will be a key part in reducing the risk of forest fires – an issue that British Columbia’s been dealing with since a spur of hot and dry weather.

Still, don’t count on clear skies and sunshine this coming weekend.
