The incredible heat in British Columbia continues thanks to a strong ridge of high pressure, which has brought warm air from the south.

Vancouver hit an all-time high again today at 34.4 C after yesterday’s 33.8 C while Victoria broke a new high of 35.0 C yesterday.

Further inland, temperatures have been even hotter with Port Alberni on Vancouver Island at 40.0 C yesterday and 38.0 C at Abbotsford in the Fraser Valley.

The blazing heat is expected to continue for a few more days.
