Warm temperatures arrived on the first day of summer, and Vancouver has been cookin’ since.
The city is currently experiencing a heat wave and Environment Canada continues to issue warnings across the province to Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland, the Okanagan and central B.C.
Officials are keeping a close eye on the temperatures as it could be record-breaking. In fact, the current heat wave could lead to a “heat dome” of potentially dangerous temperatures this weekend.
Temperatures of between 34°C – 36°C are forecasted for Metro Vancouver on Monday and Tuesday and even hotter inland.
The warnings come as a high-pressure ridge moves over B.C. and forces cooler Pacific air northbound.
