Currently (16:45) 22C (72F) on the waterfront. Warmer away from the water. Warmer at Whistler. Colder at night.Edited: 3 years ago
The next 14 day forecast (till May 22) shows sunny weather with the daytime temperature ranging from 14-22 C and nighttime at around 10 C. Vancouverites are already in their Summer-wear since the last couple of weeks.
Here is 14 day forecast for Whistler
complete with historical weather on the latter
If its sunny, its quite warm, but rain is not at all unusual this time of year and its a fair bit cooler when its grey and raining.
Bring clothes that you can wear in layers.
Base layer: shirts
Mid layer: fleecy (with hood, possibly for use in Whistler in the morning/evening) or long sleeved T-shirt with sleeveless vest
Outer layer: long sleeved sweater. Waterproof jacket with zipper and hood
Jeans/long pants, capris, shorts
Sneakers (Nike, Adidas type shoes), sandals
May is so tricky here in Vancouver. For example....today....I wore shorts and a summer sleeveless shirt most of the day, a light hoodie and sweat pants for a forest walk early evening and I just came in from cutting the grass when I wore my heavy hoodie and now at 9:00 it's downright chilly. It really can do many things. As soon as the sun is out it's summer but any breeze or rain in the forecast and it gets chilly pretty fast. Just make sure you have a warm fleece or hoodie and perhaps a waterproof jacket if you plan to be outside a lot. It's tricky!Edited: 3 years ago
