While Vancouverites are known to complain about the city's 'wet cold,' temperatures are expected to drop quite low next week.

Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning for Coastal British Columbia for the start of the week, but a cold weather pattern is expected to move into the region starting Wednesday. 

The department notes that the city could see its coldest weather of the winter so far. A north westerly flow is expected to bring arctic air to the Lower Mainland, and locals are advised to prepare for the frosty conditions. Daily highs will hover around freezing, while daily lows could fall to a chilly - 6°C or -7°C.
