Weekend heat wave to break records in south coast of B.C. Environment Canada

VANCOUVER - Environment Canada is urging people to drink lots of water because a provincewide heat wave is expected to break records in the south coast of British Columbia this weekend.

David Wray, a meteorologist with the agency, says temperatures in the southern half of the province appear to be 10 to 11 C above normal for the time of year.

Wray says it is 8 to 10 C above normal for the northern half of B.C. where temperatures will likely break records next week.

Temperatures are averaging at 30 C provincewide.

Wray says it is important to wear sunscreen this weekend because it will only take about 15 minutes for skin to get burned.

He says children or pets should not be left in cars.
