Another Dangerous Heat Dome Just Hit BC & Here's When It Will Reach 'Maximum Strength'

Here's what the insufferable heat has in store this week.

As of Wednesday, August 11, B.C.'s weather is officially back in the heat dome zone. The temperatures over the next few days have the potential to smash the August all-time heat record in some parts of British Columbia.

The extreme heat is predicted to reach its "maximum strength" on Thursday and Friday and running over until Saturday.

The Weather Network says it will linger on through the weekend, as well. You can expect heat in the mid-to-high 30s and even the low 40s in some regions.

The interior is going to get the hottest, whereas daytime highs will be a little more manageable on the coast.

With this extreme heat comes the threat of more drought and wildfires across the province.

There are currently 260 wildfires blazing around B.C. The rising heat implies more fires and, in turn, more smokey and poor-quality air conditions.
