Rain, sun, then snow-rain and sun; weekend of weird weather on the way

If you can endure a week of rain, you might be rewarded with a couple days of sun heading into Family Day weekend.

Environment Canada is calling for rain in Vancouver beginning Sunday through Wednesday, before things taper off on Thursday. A mix of sun and cloud is expected headed into the weekend before “snow-rain showers” interrupt on Sunday. Sun returns next week.

The marathon of rain begins Monday with a 30 per cent chance of rain and steady temperatures around 8 degrees. That will repeat itself on Tuesday and Wednesday, until a mix of sun and cloud and highs of 6 arrive on Thursday. Both Friday and Saturday are forecast to be sunny with highs of 7 degrees.

Then just in time for Family Day, Vancouver can expect a bit of “snow-rain,” with highs of 6 degrees, before weather returns to a mix of sun and cloud to start next week.

There are no severe weather alerts or statements at this time.

Last week, new Environment Canada figures showed that last month was the fifth wettest January on record for Vancouver. The weather agency measured 249.4 millimetres of rain; the normal amount of rain for the month of January is 168.4 millimetres. The record for wettest January on record was set in 2006 when 283.6 millimetres of rain was dumped on the region.
