A heat warning is also in effect for the Sunshine Coast, Howe Sound and Metro Vancouver.

Temperatures are expected to be in the low 30s with humidex values making it feel like 40 for the next two days.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.

Today in Richmond, Environment Canada forecasts temperatures will get as high as 25 C. The rest of the week is expected to be hot as well, with high temperatures now forecasted between 22 C and 26 C.

Heat warnings have been issued for much of the southeastern portion of the province.


With that being said, Tuesday temperatures are expected to rise back up to 24°C, with inland temperatures hitting 30°C.

Make sure to check on your friends, family, children and the elderly regularly during these extreme heat conditions.

The risk is higher for young kids, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, and people who work or exercise outside.

Some slightly cooler weather is in store beginning mid-week as an upper-level trough moves into the interior. They can also make breathing more hard.

The agency is also reminding those in the area not to leave any person or pet inside a vehicle for any period of time. Contact your local government to find out what services (such as air-conditioned buildings and public splash parks) are available in your area.
