A Smouldering 'Heat Dome' Is Heading For BC & Some Parts Will See Temperatures Over 40 C

The hottest day in history could happen early next week!

Something called a "heat dome" is expected to bubble over British Columbia by Saturday, June 26, and send B.C. weather in some parts of the province into mind-blowing heat.

The heat dome will begin in Vancouver on Friday but the super-hot temperatures won't arrive until Saturday and will be concentrated over the interior. "Temperatures push into the mid-30s across inland sections of the South coast, with even the occasional upper-30 reading in Port Alberni, Abbotsford, and throughout the southern Interior," says The Weather Network.

Sunday and Money will bring astonishing temperatures as high as 43 degrees in places like Osoyoos. Monday may actually be the warmest day in history for some parts of the province.

Environment Canada has issued a warning because this type of heat can be quite dangerous.

The warning is for the Okanagan Valley and extends all the way until Tuesday. Be sure to drink lots of water, take breaks from the sun, and turn up that air conditioning if you're one of the lucky few who have it.
