This week has already broken more than a dozen warm weather records in British Columbia — and it could happen all over again today.

Wednesday’s high temperatures broke 17 records for warmest weather across the province, according to Environment Canada.

That includes Vancouver, where the recorded high of 29.1°C beat a record set back in 1999.
