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 told Vancouver Is Awesome in a previous interview that while April's forecast looked cooler than average this year, temperatures will trend warmer for the remainder of the season. 

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