The weather in British Columbia
In British Columbia, you can enjoy several climates in one day. The province’s weather system is influenced by multiple factors, including latitude, the surrounding mountains, and, of course, the Pacific Ocean. The season you choose for your vacation in British Columbia will determine your packing needs.
In winter, the coastal weather is mild and the snow does not stick around for a long time. The only thing you will need is an umbrella to protect you from the light rain. If your vacation in British Columbia includes the interior regions, there will be snow between November and March, and the temperature can be near freezing, so pack warm clothing, that is a winter coat, hat and gloves.
During the summer months of July and August, the interior area of BC experiences the hottest weather of the year, and the south of the province reaches temperatures above 86°F. Near the coast, the temperature ranges from 72°F to 83°F.
Spring and Fall are at their best during the months of June and September, respectively. You can wear shorts and dresses, but bring a warm sweater for the evenings, just in case.
