Organized rainstorm to bring wet, windy weather to Metro Vancouver

But the rest of the month is showing a warmer-than-average signal.

The Metro Vancouver forecast includes an "organized rainstorm" following some warm, sunny weather over the Easter long weekend. 

V.I.A.'s Trout Lake Weatherhood station shows a mix of sun and cloud with a double-digit high of 16 C and a low of 7 C on Monday, April 1 (see slide two).

Other areas across the Lower Mainland are also expected to see dry weather and temperatures in the mid to late teens to kick off the week. Port Coquitlam is expected to reach a high of 15 C and a low of 5 C, while Delta's Ladner neighbourhood is also expected to reach a high of 15 C but a slightly milder low of 6 C.

Environment Canada meteorologist Armel Castellan told V.I.A. in a previous interview that the weekend's sunny respite would likely end on Tuesday as another bout of wet weather makes its way into the Lower Mainland. 

Periods of rainfall are expected to commence early Tuesday afternoon, with winds gusting up to 20 km. The organized rainstorm could drench the region with as much as 16 to 18 mm of rainfall.

The heavy rain is expected to subside by Wednesday, with a mix of sun and cloud and a 60 per cent chance of showers expected during the day and cloudy but dry periods overnight. 

Thursday's forecast includes a mix of sun and clouds while Friday is expected to be cloudy. 

The weekend looks like it will also be dry, with a mix of sun and cloud expected on Saturday and Sunday. 

Environment Canada expects April, May, and June will have a warmer-than-average trend across the country, Castellan said. 

And the warmer-than-average trend isn't expected to let up heading into the rest of summer. Continuing into July, "there is an 80 per cent probability that it is looking warmer."
