September in Vancouver

September in Vancouver

 

 

Allan Fotheringham once called Vancouver the Canadian city with the best climate and the worst weather. September has the potential to show visitors great Vancouver weather -- mild and clear; however, dull and grey is another possibility. That being said - Vancouver has a lot to offer in the beautiful month of September - when the summer stretches out long and comfortably well into October.

  • Average September temperature: 14.4ºC / 58ºF
  • September average high: 18.3ºC / 65ºF
  • September average low: 10ºC / 50ºF
  • September is not so rainy in a city famous for its rain. Expect rain about 7 - 9 days out of 30 in September.

 

What to Pack for Vancouver in September:
  • Warm, waterproof clothing; lighter clothing; closed-toe shoes.
  • Umbrella
  • Sunhat, sunglasses, sunscreen (be optimistic)
  • Sweaters, jacket -- evenings by water can be cooler than you think.

Another plus in September is that there are less tourists and the good deals on travel, accomodations and attractions begin. Keep in mind that the first weekend of the month is Labour Day - so be aware of store closures and bigger crowds.
