Locals should brace for the possibility of flurries as temperatures dip overnight in Metro Vancouver Monday (Jan. 30).
While Monday is expected to be dry during the day, there is a 30 per cent chance of flurries overnight as temperatures drop down to the freezing mark.
Tuesday's forecast also includes a 40 per cent chance of flurries or rain during the day, while showers are expected overnight.
Temperatures are expected to warm up slightly on Wednesday, with periods of rain or showers expected throughout the day and a high of 4 C with an overnight low of 3 C.
The wet weather is expected to continue through the remainder of the week and into the weekend. However, temperatures are forecast to climb up a few degrees, with daytime highs ranging between 7 C to 9 C.
Metro Vancouver weather forecast
While Environment Canada's models can estimate general patterns in the long-term Metro Vancouver weather forecast, weather anomalies, such as Arctic air, can only be predicted about seven to 10 days out.
But this doesn't mean that the region couldn't see another cold spell in February -- or even in March. That said, the possibility of ultra-cold temperatures lessens heading into March, as longer days warm temperatures up.
The national weather forecaster is calling for below-average temperatures in February but there is always some fluctuation in the month.
