We may officially be getting some summer-y weather (well not quite – there will be some cold days), Victoria!

As we head into the weekend, Victorians can go ahead and slather on the sunscreen as we head into a week-long of sunshine.

Environment Canada is predicting 7 straight days of sunshine – with a smattering of clouds here and there – for the capital this week.

Temperatures are expected to average between 5 and 7ºC for most of the week, while  Saturday’s temperatures could reach as high as 11 ºC with a 30% chance of showers at some point.

Nighttime lows are forecast to reach a cool and mostly clear 1 to -2ºC, making for perfect stargazing weather.

Looks like a weekend hiking trip might be in order – while physical distancing of course!
