It's supposed to hit 30C in Metro Vancouver this afternoon

Jul 26 2020, 6:43 pm

A special weather statement from Environment Canada about the first heat of the summer is still in effect for Metro Vancouver.

The weather agency says temperatures are forecast to hit 30C Sunday and Monday in the Lower Mainland.

“A ridge of high pressure building over southern BC will produce the highest temperatures experienced so far this summer over the Lower Mainland, Sea to Sky, and Vancouver Island,” Environment Canada said in its statement.

Temperatures will likely peak in the late afternoon, and the weather agency reminded people not to leave children or pets in parked cars.

The heat is forecast to break on Tuesday, when cooler marine air is expected to come in over the city.
