Break out the sunglasses, Victoria!

After a February full of snow and cloudy weather, Victorians are in for a whole week of sunshine going into March.

According to Environment Canada, sunny days will mark the beginning of spring, marred only by a smattering of clouds here and there.

Temperatures are also expected to rise, with this Friday and Saturday forecasted to receive daytime highs of 7°C.

There is a slight, 30% chance of flurries on Wednesday night, followed immediately by clear skies and 6°C weather on Thursday.

The Weather Network’s long-term spring forecast for Victoria and BC supports this weather pattern, as it predicts above average seasonal temperatures for the region.
