Heat Warning

Issued at 04:39 Monday 27 June 2022

This stretch of hot weather will continue one more day.

Timespan: Today.

Locations: Lower Mainland and Howe Sound.

Hazards: Inland temperatures reaching 34 degrees today.

Remarks: A strong ridge of high pressure over the south coast today will be
replaced by an upper low pressure system on Tuesday. Consequently,
afternoon temperatures as high as 34 degrees away from the water will lower by about 10 degrees on Tuesday as cooler marine air moves in from the Pacific.

With elevated temperatures, the risk of heat related illness increases.

High freezing levels will lead to an increase in snowmelt and snowpack instability. Increased stream flows due to run-off are probable.

Although heat is expected, bodies of water still remain cool for this time of year and may pose a risk of hypothermia with prolonged exposure.
