New temperature records unlikely during PG heatwave

The first major heat wave of the summer will be with us a few more days according to Environment Canada.

PG did not smash any temperature records yesterday (Wednesday) despite a mark of 32 degrees – the all-time high is 34 degrees, which was set back in 1998.

In addition, the temperature record for July 28th (today) is 35 degrees, which was set back in 1934.

Meteorologist, Ken Dosanjh told MyPGNow.com it will still be quite warm during the August long-weekend, but it won’t be as sweltering as it’s been.

“We are still looking at above-seasonal temperatures but we are kind of looking at the high-twenties. Generally, it should feel pretty nice and we are expecting that gradual cool off because the ridge of high pressure, which has been the dominant weather feature in British Columbia will start to breakdown.”

“So, looking into the weekend, it should generally be a nice weekend and not significantly hot. But, it will be more summer like. Moving into next week, that is when we are going to see a little more cloud cover and possible chances of showers as we cool down to seasonal temperatures.”

Monday’s high is expected to dip to 22 degrees with a 60% chance of showers during the evening.
