PHOTOS: Metro Vancouver heads to the beach on warmest weekend of the year

A small child enjoys the rays at Kits Beach on June 4, 2016, during Vancouver's warmest weekend of the year to date.

What a difference a week makes.

After last weekend saw Vancouver’s wettest day so far in 2016, this weekend saw the warmest.

Temperatures reached as high as 26 degrees Celsius at Vancouver Harbour. That wasn’t a record for June 5 – but 23 records for the day fell in British Columbia.

“It feels like the middle of the summer,” said Global BC meteorologist Michael Kuss. “When you have temperatures in the 30s, that’s unusual for anytime of the year except for the core of summer.”

The local beaches, rivers, and parks were jam packed throughout the weekend and social media boomed with images of blue oceans, sunsets, and sandy toes. Check out some of our favourite pictures below:

However, the August-like weather won’t last much longer this month, says Kuss.

“We’ll be back to the teens by Thursday, Friday and Saturday,” he says.

“There’s no sign of anything sub-seasonal in the near future, but we’ll wrap up the spring season with near seasonal temperatures.”
