Surrey Weather Overview

Surrey occupies a large portion of southeast Metro Vancouver (visit our South Surrey Weather Page for weather information for South Surrey). Given it’s large area, it’s no wonder that the weather varies significantly throughout the city. Like most of Metro Vancouver, Surrey’s weather is dominated by the ocean (Strait of Georgia) to the West, mountains to the north and Fraser Valley to the east. However, given Surrey’s varied topography and proximity to the both the mountains and ocean, Surrey is home to a multitude of microclimates that affect its weather on a day-to-day basis.
Being located south of the Fraser River, and slightly further from the mountains than cities like Burnaby and Coquitlam, Surrey tends to receive slightly more sunshine than Metro Vancouver’s northern communities. In general, sunshine in Surrey is highest in southwestern portions, such as Panorama Ridge, and lowest in northeastern portions, just as Port Kells. South Surrey receives more sunshine than the rest of Surrey.
Just like with sunshine, rainfall amounts in Surrey are influenced by it’s proximity to the mountains, with lower amounts in southwestern portions and higher amounts in northeastern portions. Nevertheless, Surrey receives less rainfall then areas to the north, such as Coquitlam, but more than areas to the south and West, such as Delta. Surrey also receives more rainfall than South Surrey
Snowfall is highly variable throughout Surrey and depends significantly on elevation. Elevated areas, such a Guildford and Surrey Centre tend to receive more snowfall then areas at sea level, such as Bridgeview or the western part of Cloverdale. In fact, a drive down King George Boulevard from Scott Road Skytrain Station all the way until South Surrey after a winter storm can beautifully illustrate the highly variable nature of Surrey’s snowfall. In addition, the eastern parts of Surrey are slightly more exposed to colder, outflow winds from the Fraser Valley during cold snaps, and may receive more snowfall than the western portions in these cases.
Summer Temperatures
Summer temperatures in Surrey tend to be slightly warmer than communities to the west, especially in the eastern sections. Low lying communities in the eastern part of Surrey, such as Port Kells and Cloverdale, tend to have the highest summer temperatures, while areas to the south and west, such as Panorama Ridge tend to have the lowest. Overall summer temperatures in Surrey tend to be slightly warmer than communities to the west, such as Vancouver, and similar to eastern Burnaby and much of Coquitlam.
Winter Temperatures
Winter temperatures in Surrey are relatively uniform, however they end to be slightly higher in western sections than in eastern sections. Overall winter temperatures in Surrey are very similar to much of central and eastern Metro Vancouver, and communities such as Burnaby, New Westminster and parts of Coquitlam.
