Patios, beaches, and sunscreen are officially the order of the day.

As the weather starts to warm up in the Greater Victoria region, residents can expect almost a full seven days of sunshine this week.

Barring one day of rain on Thursday, weather forecasts for the Victoria region indicate nothing but sun from Monday to Sunday this week.

Daytime temperatures across the board are expected to be higher than 20ºC, reaching a maximum of 25ºC on Sunday.

Overnight, forecasts suggest temperatures will not dip below 10ºC, with mostly cloudless nights, providing optimum stargazing opportunities.

As we’re still in the middle of a pandemic, remember to maintain physical distancing when enjoying the outdoors, and wear a mask if distancing is not possible.
