On Tuesday, June 1, the Weather Network released their summer forecast and it looks like B.C. summer weather is going to be scorching and dry.
A hot and dry summer is predicted for the southern and central interior of B.C. Meanwhile, a "very warm" and dry summer is on the way for coastal areas like Vancouver and Victoria. These regions will see above-average temperatures and below-average precipitation levels.
Meanwhile, in the north, it will also be hotter than in past years, but the amount of rain won't be any different than usual.
While this is great news for beachgoers and sunbathers alike, this type of weather does present some risks. The Weather Network is calling for a heightened wildfire potential as well as the potential for poor air quality. These risks are the most prevalent throughout the months of July, August and September.
Western Canada is going to experience above-normal temperatures all the way from Vancouver to Winnipeg and beyond.
