Last week, the Metro Vancouver weather forecast called for a week of rainfall, and even a risk of thunderstorms.
Now, Environment Canada calls for a decidedly drier change of pace starting on Tuesday, Oct. 22.
Starting on Monday, Oct. 21, the forecast calls for rain — and a great deal of it. In fact, Metro Vancouver could see up to 30 to 40 mm of rainfall during the day. In addition, the evening forecast calls for an additional 5 to 10 mm of rain.
Tuesday is expected to see a mix of sun and cloud during the day. As a result of extremely clear skies, however, the evening is expected to dip down to a brisk six degrees. Wednesday is expected to be bright and sunny, and the evening will see some cloudy periods. Thursday’s forecast calls for cloudy skies all day, while Friday is expected to see some periods of rain during the day.
Currently, the weekend forecast looks bright and sunny with both Saturday and Sunday calling for sunshine and a high of 11 degrees. The clear skies will result in chilly temperatures overnight, and Saturday evening is currently calling for a low of three degrees.
Metro Vancouver Weather Forecast
If you felt like fall came unseasonably early in the Lower Mainland, you aren’t alone.
Not only have there been many dreary, rainy days, but there have also been a number of downpours. Vancouverites witnessed an intense downpour around 4 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 9 that caused flash flooding in parts of the city. As a matter of fact, Vancouver received over twice the average rainfall for September.
