Special Weather Statement

Issued at 05:20 Sunday 25 June 2017

Hot weather will continue today.

A strong upper ridge of high pressure over the province will bring another day of heat to southwestern BC. Along the coast, temperatures are expected to peak once again in the low 30s. Over the southwestern interior, temperatures will push into the mid to high 30s.

Conditions will begin to moderate on Monday over the South Coast as an onshore flow of cooler, marine air develops. Over the southwest interior, conditions will moderate more slowly but daytime highs on Monday should be at least couple of degrees cooler.

The risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.

Watch for the effects of heat illness: swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions.

Drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place.

Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.
