Thursday’s high temperatures across British Columbia were no joke.

In fact, more than a dozen weather records were broken due to temperatures well above the seasonal average, mixed in with humidity.

According to Environment Canada, 15 temperature records were broken in total.

“A strong ridge of high pressure has set up over BC this week, giving sunny and hot conditions to much of the province in this late summer season,” says the weather agency.

Several of the records broken were in the Metro Vancouver area.

Vancouver saw a daily record high of 26.7°C, breaking the previous record of 26.1°C set in 1944. Temperatures for this region have been kept dating back to 1896.

West Vancouver set a new record high of 30.1°C, shattering an old record of 25.8°C that was set in 1987.

Squamish also reached a record high of 31.6°C, breaking a previous high temperature of 29.3°C set in 2013.
