Is Victoria warmer in Feb/March than the sunshine coast?

I just noticed that Victoria is further south than the sunshine coast. Is it warmer in Feb/March than the sunshine coast, city of Sechelt? If it is what would be the average temperature in Victoria during these months?

Hi vamos ~

They will be just about the same temp-wise. Victoria is a city with accompanying amenities, the Sunshine Coast seems to gave a much more rural feeling. Compare the climate stats here:

Temp is the same - but it rarely snows in Sechelt. The charts above compare Gibsons to Victoria - not Sechelt. I have left here with mild temps and a little rain to arrive in Gibsons - 20 minutes later - in a snow storm. Come back to Sechelt - nothing.

The website doesn't offer Sechelt as a choice! Should have mentioned that.

Here's the Gov't of Canada's stats for Sechelt. You can change the month choice to March or just click on "next month."

If you are planning on visiting at that time there is WAY more to do / see in Victoria than on the Sunshine Coast.

Depends on what you like to do and the OP asked about the weather not activities.
