Burnaby Climate, Temperatures and Rainfall


Burnaby has a mild climate year-round, resulting in spectacular greenery and urban scenery. The air masses which cross the Pacific bring ample rainfall to the Burnaby, particularly in the autumn and winter. Winters in Burnaby are wet rather than snowy; snow does not usually accumulate at lower elevations but may stay for much of the winter months on the higher elevations of the North Shore Mountains. The frost-free season on the coast is the longest in Canada, averaging more than 200 days each year.


Climate, ecology and geology of the Lower Mainland are consistent enough that it has been classified as a separate ecoregion. Burnaby is part of the Lower Mainland Ecoregion which is the biogeoclimatic region that surrounds the lower mainland comprising the eastern edge of the Georgia Depression and extending from Powell River, on the Sunshine Coast to Hope at the eastern end of the Fraser Valley. The Lower Mainland Ecoregion is a part of the Pacific Maritime Ecozone.


The Pacific Maritime Ecozone ecoregion is bounded by the Coast and Cascade Mountains and traversed by the Fraser River. These classifications are used by both Federal and Provincial Environment Ministries as part of the Ecological framework of Canada.


Summer weather usually extends from June until mid-September, with warm and breezy days. Flower usually start blooming in early spring and can most often still be seen in late fall. This affords bragging rights to Burnaby residents who have friends and relatives in more severe climates.


Burnaby is situated in a coastal temperate rainforest zone. Average daily high temperatures peak at 23°C/73°F in July and August, and hit 8°C/46°F in January. The city gets about 2,000 hours of sunshine annually, and the average annual rainfall is 147 cm/58 in.


The well-publicized mild, wet winters and cool, dry summers associated with British Columbia are characteristic only of the southwest portion of the province. This is reflected in Burnaby’s moderate climate with warm summers and cool rainy winters. Both snow and high humidity are rarely seen.
