Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Sea to Sky. First hot stretch of the summer for the south coast is from Friday through Tuesday.
Daytime highs will be in the low 30’s with overnight lows down to the mid-teens.
The south coast will experience a stretch of warmer than average temperatures beginning tomorrow. On Friday, inland temperatures will reach into the upper 20’s.
Through the weekend and into early next week, temperatures in the low 30’s are forecast. There will be some respite from the elevated daytime temperatures as overnight lows fall into the mid-teens.
Freezing levels rise throughout this event and will lead to an increase in snowmelt and snowpack instability. Increased stream flows due to run-off are possible. 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.
While a heat warning is not in the forecast, the warmer-than-average temperatures may feel intensified in comparison to the cooler-than-normal temperatures experienced throughout B.C. over the past month. It is important that people keep themselves and others safe during warmer than average temperatures.
