Vancouver nearing record dry July

07/23/2013 06:43 EDT | Updated 09/22/2013 05:12 EDT
Mainly clear skies will continue through to the weekend under a high pressure system, with temperatures in the mid-20s for the next few days, says CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe.

Morning fog will continue to move in with sea breezes through the early hours until the end of the week, but will also continue to clear up quite quickly by late morning.

A weak disturbance will bring some cooler temperatures for the weekend but it looks like the sun will stick around.

If Vancouver can make it to the end of July with trace or less rain, it will beat its all-time record for the driest July, set in 1985.

The record for the greatest number of sunshine hours for the month will likely also be broken, with a record 388 hours also set in 1985.

The dry run looks set to continue through this week and into the weekend, with a chance of showers Sunday through Tuesday.

Temperatures will also be warming starting mid-week. No soaking rain in the long range though.
