Burnaby weather won't suck in the next couple of weeks - we desperately need sun

Two weeks of sun are in the forecast - hopefully they are right

Well, this news doesn’t suck.

The Burnaby weather forecast calls for two weeks of spectacular sunny, pleasant weather, albeit the nights will still feel cool. 

And that’s something everyone in Burnaby can really embrace. Saturday was sunny but cool and local parks and trails were packed with people getting outside – something even health officials will admit is pretty safe amid COVID-19 as long as protocols are following. And we need to follow the protocols as Burnaby recently set a weekly case record with 366.

The Weather Network calls for a dry two weeks to come, with daily highs reaching up to 20°C - hopefully that forecast comes true.

While Sunday will see daily highs just below the double digits, temperatures are expected to climb starting Monday. Daily highs are expected to range between 14°C and 17°C through until next Friday. 

On Saturday, April 17, the forecast calls for a daily high of 18°C and bright sunshine. And while daily highs aren't expected to soar that high again that week, overnight lows aren't expected to dip below 7°C. 

While summer might start off with a bang in Metro Vancouver, April's forecast isn't looking particularly warm for the Lower Mainland.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Armel Castellan tells Glacier Media that April's forecast looks cooler than average this year. What's more, he says it looks like the month will see temperatures up to 2°C below seasonal averages. 

"I think we're going to see a higher probability of seeing that continued northwesterly flow giving lower normals," he explains. 

"We don't see anomalous warmth. That's kind of why the April forecast seems pretty consistent."

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