Hope makes the hottest place in B.C. and Canada at 4 p.m.

Hope can call itself a smoking hot place for one hour.

As of 4 p.m., Hope represents the hottest spot in British Columbia and Canada is currently Hope Airport, measuring 36.9 C, according to Environment Canada. Environment Canada’s reading currently also calls for smoky conditions.

They predict today to be the hottest day of the week, with temperatures declining into the weekend.

They also put out an advisory on Wednesday afternoon saying that the heat wave will continue for the south coast of B.C.

“A massive ridge of high pressure will continue to remain over southern B.C. Daytime maximum temperatures will soar into the mid-30 through Friday for communities in the Fraser Valley, Howe Sound, Whistler and Inland Vancouver Island,” said the advisory. “The heat combined with the lack of rainfall will maintain high to extreme fire danger ratings across much of southern B.C.”

They advise people that heat-related illnesses are likelier during prolonged periods of hot weather. Those most vulnerable to high temperatures include young children, pregnant women, the elderly, those working or exercising in the heat, persons with chronic illnesses, people living alone in un-air-conditioned homes, and the homeless, they add.

“Drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place,” they advise. “Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.”
