The big change comes Sunday, as an upper-level low approaches from the south. This will keep clouds around with a chance of showers at times and a daytime high in the low 30s.

The risk of some much-needed showers will linger into B.C. Day on Monday, with an afternoon high into the high 20s.

The first work week of August will kick off on a cooler note as well, with afternoon temperatures aiming for the low 30s under a mix of sun and clouds.
