The Metro Vancouver weather forecast has included a number of record-breaking temperatures in the past few days. In fact, Wednesday, March 20 was the third consecutive day that numerous record-high temperatures were broken across the province.

And while February 2019 was the coldest February on record in Metro Vancouver since the records began in 1937, spring is predicted to be warmer than usual.

The Weather Network has updated its spring forecast for the province, and it calls for warmer weather as well as, “a heightened threat for flooding from rapid snow melt in the alpine regions.” However, it also notes that Western Canada has already seen “May-like weather” during the first two weeks of March.

In addition, the seasonal forecast highlights that will spring will, “not be smooth sailing all the way to summer as periods of cooler and unsettled weather will still occur at times.” Furthermore, the forecast states that the province will see above average levels of precipitation.

The forecast also included a ‘sneak peek’ for summer, which includes warmer than normal temperatures in B.C. as well as parts of Atlantic Canada. Sadly, the very warm summer means that they, “are concerned about increasingly dry conditions and an increasing wild fire threat in the west.”
