This morning Environment and Climate Change Canada issued a wind warning for the entire Sunshine Coast. Winds were blowing over 40 kilometres an hour last night and this morning, Tuesday, June 4..

The Weatherhood app indicates that temperatures will hover around 15 degrees Celsius for most of the day today, and will continue to rise through the week, with a possibility of rain showers.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday, temperatures will rise above 20 degrees in the daytime and dip below 10 degrees in the evening.

According to ECCC, June 1 marks the first day of meteorological summer. People have been able to enjoy later sunsets this past month with tonight's sunset at 9:22 pm. The summer solstice and subsequent longest day of the year takes place on Thursday, June 20. 

BC has been notably below normal temperatures since mid-May, stated the ECCC, and this cold spell is expected to continue into early June.
