Now that the weather has finally gotten warmer, it looks like the sun may be here to stay!

While island weather can get fairly unpredictable – as with the unseasonably wet first half of July during which Victoria received the highest amount of rainfall in years – Environment Canada predicts sunshine til at least next Tuesday.

According to Environment Canada, the rainfall in the first two weeks of July have already exceeded the monthly average for the city.

In Victoria, the average total rainfall for the entire month of July is 17.9 mm. In the first 19 days of the month, the city has already received 22.8 mm.

But as of now, city dwellers can start flocking to their local watering holes – and we mean this literally – to cool off.

Don’t forget the sunscreen!
