This means warm and dry summers with mild, cool, and rainy winters. Nanaimo receives an annual average rainfall of 919 mm, lower than the Vancouver Islands average by almost 900 mm. This is due to an effect caused by the Beaufort Mountain Range, where the Aleutian Low-Pressure weather system is blocked as it travels from the West Coast of Vancouver Island to the East Coast. Winter temperatures on average rarely drop below 0°C and tend to sit on average around 2.9°C.
In the summer, Lantzville sees an average temperature of 17°C between July and August. These long warm summers make for a fantastic growing and barbeque season!

Lantzville used to be considered part of Nanoose and was a popular coal site that Mr. Grant owned. Eventually, an American company came in and bought Mr. Grant out in 1920. One of the directors of the American company was Mr. Fraser, Harry Lantz. From then on, the area became known as Lantzville. Believe it or not, Lantzville has a few homes that still stand today, that were the site of dozens of cabins that Chinese mine workers used to live in. Which is near Wiles Creek and is often referred to as “China Town neighborhood.” While the reminiscence of the mining structures is no longer present, it contributed significantly to Lantzville's well-being, and the people of Lantzville are proud of its history.
