It's been a dry month in Vancouver.

"As of July 21st, [Vancouver International Airport] has not recorded any rain for all of July," says Dayna Vettese, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.

"Vancouver's record driest month in July was in 1985, with a trace of rain."

The airport typically sees about 36 mm each July.

While there are showers in the long-term forecast, it probably won't be enough to meet the average.

"We’ll have to play the 'wait and see' game for the next week and a bit," Vettese says.

"The fire danger rating is also on the rise due to the dry weather."

As of July 21, B.C.'s wildfire management branch had recorded a total of 460 fires in the province so far this year.

To date, 5,414 hectares have been burned.
