Meanwhile, Saturday and Sunday will see an average of 10 degrees each day. 

Saturday will be particularly wet, with up to 40 millimetres of rain from morning to night. The forecast predicts Sunday will get 10-15 millimetres of rain, with some sun.

This may make it easier for Vancouverites to stay home and self-isolate, as opposed to last weekend.

The city saw many people out enjoying the sun last week, gathering at parks and beaches and even throwing parties.
