After many weeks of relatively warm temperatures and near-consecutive days of sunshine, wet weather is returning to Metro Vancouver this week.

Environment Canada’s short-term forecast indicates periods of rain will hit the South Coast of B.C. on Wednesday, Thursday and this weekend. However, temperatures will remain mild throughout the week and into the official start of spring on Friday, March 20.

Grouse, Seymour and Cypress mountains will not see any snowfall, but Whistler Blackcomb could see traces of snow from flurries over high elevations.

Last month, a new temperature high of 10.5°C was recorded, breaking the previous record of 10.4°C in 1977.

This contrasts with Toronto’s February: Canada’s largest city experienced its coldest February month ever with an average temperature of -12.6°C. Toronto’s normal average temperature for the month is usually -4.5°C.
