The Vancouver weather forecast calls for some toasty daily highs this week as inland temperatures soar well over 20°C inland. 

Starting off the week on Monday, April 12, Environment Canada calls for bright sunshine and a high of 13°C along the water and 16°C inland. Following this, Tuesday will be slightly warmer, with the forecast calling for a high of 14°C near the water and 19°C inland. Similarly, Wednesday and Thursday are expected to see daily highs of 15°C except 21°C inland.

Friday's forecast calls for bright sunshine and a high of 18°C except for a toasty 24°C inland. Saturday's forecast calls for a high of 19°C along the water and 24°C inland, too. 

Metro Vancouver Weather Forecast

While summer might start off with a bang in Metro Vancouver, the first half of April saw cooler than average temperatures in the region. 

Environment Canada Meteorologist Armel Castellan tells Vancouver Is Awesome that April's forecast looks cooler than average this year. What's more, he says it looks like the month will see temperatures up to 2°C below seasonal averages. 

"I think we're going to see a higher probability of seeing that continued northwesterly flow giving lower normals," he explains. 

"We don't see anomalous warmth. That's kind of why the April forecast seems pretty consistent."

Following April, however, Castellan says the south of B.C. is expected to see above-average temperatures for May and June. That said, he notes that the forecast is still showing the weaker "end of the probabilities," such as 40 to 50 per cent.
