The wet weather will follow sunshine and a high of 20 C on Tuesday.

The Metro Vancouver weather forecast includes a shift to rain this week following several sunny days. 

Before the rain begins, daytime highs will soar up to 20 C inland in parts of the Lower Mainland on Tuesday, April 23, according to Environment Canada.
