Temperatures not expected to dip until the weekend

With a heat warning continuing for 100 Mile House and Williams Lake today, were any records broken yesterday in the Cariboo?

Meteorologist for Environment Canada, Doug Lundquist has the answer.

“No, because I think it’s perhaps due to the smoke around that tends to reduce the amount of sunlight that hits the ground,” he says.

“So we didn’t but we were close. It was a little clearer toward Lytton and Lillooet and Lytton hit 40.6 °C yesterday”.

Williams Lakes record high on this day was 32.5 °C and Quesnel was 35.6 °C.

Today’s forecasted high is 36 and if some of the smoke breaks up, Lundquist said it is possible that a record could be broken.

Looking at the long-range forecast Lundquist said Environment Canada is expecting a cold front tomorrow and the high will be around 29 with a chance of showers. For the weekend highs are expected to reach the mid-twenties with a chance of showers.
