VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – We’re in store for a great summer, but you’ll have to wait a bit.
Friday marks the last day of spring, with Meteorologist Russ Lacate saying it’s going to be a sluggish start to the sun and heat.
“But I suspect [summer] is going to finish with a flourish,” he says. “This showery start to June we’re experiencing, it does continue, at times, through the end of the month and even into early July. Mind you, the temperature begins to skew a few degrees on the high-side of average.”

The recent cooler, cloudier, and wetter conditions we’ve been experiencing over the past few weeks have been a little more than usual, Russ notes.
However, the weeks to come will feature warmer temperatures, albeit still unsettled.
“It seems summer gets off to a slow start this year with frequent showers persisting into early July,” Russ says.

However, conditions change over the mid-July to mid-September timeframe.
“It’s expected drier, and warmer, and sunnier than average, and that is all across the Lower Mainland,” he says. “[More] than what we’re accustomed to when it comes to your west coast summer.”
