Vancouverites were privy to bellowing thunder and a powerful hailstorm in the city to finish up the weekend — but the meteorological theatrics are expected to pick up again this week.
Starting on Monday (April 11), however, Environment Canada calls for a mix of sun and cloud with light, 30 km/h wind near the Strait of Georgia and a high of 12°C. While there is a 60 per cent chance of showers later tonight, places at higher elevations may see wet flurries.
Heading into Tuesday, the forecast includes a "few showers ending near noon" with wet flurries possible in places with higher elevations. Later in the afternoon, there is a risk of thunderstorms and a 60 per cent chance of showers. The wet weather is expected to continue overnight with a low of 2°C.
The forecast includes a mix of sun and cloud for the rest of the week, with double-digit daily highs ranging between 10°C and 13°C and lows between 3°C and 4°C.
