Sun and snow: Here is when you might see some snow in Metro Vancouver

You'll see plenty of sunshine but another opportunity for snowfall is on the horizon.
The Weather Network and Environment Canada call for below-average temperatures for the winter in Vancouver, B.C. in December 2022.

Locals can enjoy a sunny reprieve this week following some wet weather in the Lower Mainland. 

Environment Canada calls for a long stretch of bright sunshine and brisk temperatures in Metro Vancouver following a couple of rainy days over the weekend. 

On Monday, Dec. 12, the forecast includes sunshine and a high of 5 C dropping to -2 C overnight, followed by a mainly cloudy day on Tuesday with a high of 3 C and an overnight low of -1 C. 

Heading into Wednesday, Vancouverites can expect a few days of bright sunshine with highs ranging between 3 C and 4 C and dropping between -1 C and -3 C overnight. 

While Saturday is expected to see a mix of sun and cloud, Sunday's forecast includes a 60 per cent chance of flurries.

The Weather Network and Environment Canada call for below-average temperatures to kick off the winter season in Metro Vancouver following the snowiest November in over a decade. 

Prior to the start of meteorological winter, there were a variety of temperatures throughout the fall, and taking an average temperature for the 90 days doesn't tell the complete story.

Instead, a closer look at the fall season in Vancouver shows that it was "volatile" and a "season of extremes," according to a new report.
