Praise the rain gods! Showers returning to Vancouver on Sunday

Dec 19 2017, 4:07 pm

We have never been so happy to see rain in the forecast.

After over two months with just a few millimetres of rain, it looks like Metro Vancouver will get a watering this weekend to quench some very thirsty earth.

Environment Canada is forecasting cooler temperatures beginning Wednesday and into this weekend, leading to a 30 per cent chance of showers on Sunday and a 60 per cent chance of showers Sunday night.

Monday and Tuesday will start the week with clouds and highs of 20° and 21° Celsius.

This marks the end to a two week-long heat wave that hit the South Coast region near the end of June. Temperatures around Metro Vancouver hit as high at 32°C on June 27 and 36°C on July 5.
