Hi again, Shelley ~

Anytime in July, August or September will usually have decent weather. July was wet this year, but is not usually. August and September were great and well into October too. Having said that, weather is changeable here, particular into the fall, later in September.

The following link can be opened to see the weather data for Vancouver for Sept 2012. You can change the month and year at your pleasure to see the temps and rainfall:

Early August will have more daylight and is warmer than late September.

Early August hands down. Already miss the long evenings <sigh>.

If I don't get my exterior house painting done by the end of the 3rd week in September, often there will not be 3 dry days in a row until late spring. This year being the exception of course :).

The Vancouver reports can be misleading with the weather station at the airport where it is affected by the sea temperature. (cooler in summer) Also look at Abbotsford airport temperature which is an hour by car inland.

August is warmer than Sept, but Vancouver's weather is moody, you never know when it'll rain!

The nice thing about late September is that there are less tourists. So a lot of activities are less crowded.
