While the Metro Vancouver weather forecast calls for a stretch of sunshine in the week ahead, the next couple of days will be wet and windy.

Starting on Thursday, Oct. 24, Environment Canada calls for showers during the day and rainfall and wind at night. Following this, the forecast calls for rain on Friday during the day as well as powerful winds in the south between 30 to 50 km/h becoming northwest 40 gusting to 70 km/h in the morning. However, the evening is expected to be clear.

Saturday through Wednesday is expected to be bright and sunny with daily highs between 12°C and 10°C. With this in mind, the nights will be clear, and therefore the temperatures will drop down between a chilly 2°C and 4°C.
