Vancouver’s heat streak continues and it’s not showing any signs of slowing down.
Now, the city is on the brink of breaking a weather record with today’s rising mercury.
According to Environment Canada, today’s temperatures have an almost guaranteed chance of being the warmest May 9 in more than 80 years.
Historical data from the weather agency states that the highest temperature on this day in history was 23.3°C, a record that was set in 1975.
Today’s inland temperatures, which are expected to reach a high of 28°C, would break the record by at least several degrees.
Vancouver’s daily weather records could also be broken over the next two days.
Environment Canda is expecting inland highs of 29°C and 26°C on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
Buckle up Vancouver! It’s looking to be a hot one.
