THOMPSON-OKANAGAN - After a mix of rain and cloud much of the weekend Mother Nature has decided to smile down on Canada Day with a lot of sun and heat.
The entire Interior will be drenched in temperatures between 32-35 C on July 1 and then Wednesday will also be around 34 C but neither day will likely reach record highs, which vary between 36-40 C for those two days.
The rest of the week will remain above the normals of 25-27 C reaching from 28-30 C through the rest of the week.
Health Link B.C. says anything above 27 C you need to take extra precautions when outdoors. It recommends not exercising too hard, take regular breaks and drink more fluids. It warns to be extremely careful in temperatures between 29-33 C and notes temperatures over 33 C are considered extremely dangerous.
