Back in April, Environment Canada told Vancouver Is Awesome that the Lower Mainland would likely see above average temperatures in late spring and into summer. Further, it noted that the summer season would likely be warmer overall. These above-average temperatures are expected to continue into the autumn season.

Environment Canada has also stated that Vancouver will see above average temperatures this upcoming winter. However, it also states that it cannot comment on how much precipitation the Lower Mainland will receive. Find out more information about the frosty season here.
