Hot, smoky conditions continue for BC Interior, south coast

Hot, smoky conditions continue for BC Interior, south coast”

Air quality continues to be affected by the current weather pattern over the BC Coast, which has caused outflow winds to transport smoke from wildfires burning in the BC Interior towards our region.

The province's air quality index shows a high health risk for central and south Okanagan, Metro Vancouver, eastern Fraser Valley, Squamish, Whistler and Williams Lake early Wednesday.

Environment Canada is warning that a long stretch of hot weather could push temperatures on parts of Vancouver Island into the mid-to-high 30s this week.

Environment Canada recommends young children, pregnant women, older people and anyone working or exercising in the heat be especially cautious.

Also keep in mind to never leave people or pets in a parked vehicle as temperatures can grow exponentially hotter inside a vehicle.

This also means fire danger ratings will remain extreme across much of southern BC due to lack of rainfall over the past month.

An air-quality advisory has been issued for Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley starting Tuesday morning, as smoke from wildfires drifts into the region, bringing high concentrations of fine particulate matter that are expected to last for several days.

"Exposure to increased smoke concentrations is particularly a concern for infants, the elderly and those who have underlying medical conditions such as heart or lung disease", says the ministry statement.
