Victoria temperatures expected to hit 19 degrees by Tuesday

Spring around the corner after cold and snowy February

Some spring-like weather is expected to make an appearance in Victoria next week.

Starting over the weekend, the city will enjoy double-digit temperatures – with Friday and Saturday temperatures expected to sit around 10 degrees and a mix of sun and cloud.

But by Sunday there’s nothing but sun in the forecast. Sun and a high of 14 degrees is forecast for Sunday before temperatures rise to 17 degrees on Monday and 19 degrees on Tuesday.

The warmer weather is a chance for Greater Victoria to embrace the blossoming city after an especially cold February that saw an average temperature of 1.1 degrees and over 69 cm of snow fall in Victoria alone.
