The Weather in Vancouver

Most people here say jokingly “if you don’t like the weather in Vancouver, wait a few minutes!” meaning that we have really unpredictable weather which really isn’t true.

Weather in Vancouver

I think people are just “use” to living in paradise and always want something “more”.

We have wonderful seasons and you’ll like it here no matter what time of year you decide to visit.

Where else in the world can you find palm trees growing naturally on the beach that you can pass by on the way to do some night skiing on the local hills?

Winter in Vancouver occasionally it snows in Vancouver, but it really that often that we actually have snow in the city itself but it does happen from time to time but...

Rarely more than a few inches that will only last a few days and not more than 5 days before it’s all melted away and you’d never know it was here.

However, the snow does stay on the local ski hills well into May on some of them. And don’t forget about the Christmas carol ships that sail every night during the season!

Spring in Vancouver starts in mid March with the leaves starting to show blossoming buds. We do get a fair amount of rain which makes sense because we do live in a temperate rain forest region that stretches from the northern tip of California all the way to Alaska so the West Coast is also known to some and the “wet coast” but this is also the reason that it is so green here.

There is also the Mojave Desert region that stretches from California almost all the way to Alaska as well but that is in the interior of the province which would be a multi day trip out of Vancouver and it is also very beautiful in its own way.

Summer in Vancouver is like heaven on earth to me because it’s nice and warm but not hot (like in California with the heat waves and fires) and there is just so much to do and see. You’ll always see sail boats in the harbours and people walking on the seawall and giant kites flying at Vanier Park and so much more.

Vancouver weather in fall

Fall in Vancouver is my really favourite time of year. When autumn finally comes and the weather in Vancouver begins to cool off in mid to late September the city becomes alive with the colours of autumn with it’s reds, green and browns.

When all the leaves begin to change and fall to the ground and even though it is the fall, there is always a few hot days left to go out in shorts and soak up the last bits of hot weather in Vancouver!

You’ll see people kayak in Vancouver all year round and in all weather in Vancouver and it is just one of the many activities in Vancouver that you can do year round.
