Summer’s in Los Angeles are known to be arid, dry, and hot, something that Vancouverites have gotten used to these past two summer seasons.

And in Vancouver:
Vancouver beats out LA when it comes to average temperatures, overnight temperatures, and humidex values.
After the heatwave subsides, Vancouver’s 14-day trend looks a lot more friendly and cool than this week. Temperatures are expected to cool down into the mid to low 20s, while temperatures in LA are expected to subsist around the 30˚C mark.
Along with sweltering temperatures, Environment Canada has also issued air quality advisories for much of Metro Vancouver due to a high concentration of ground-level ozone expected to persist through the week.
