All-time heat records shattered again for Kamloops, Okanagan and Canada

June 29, 2021 - 7:00 AM

All-time high temperature records in B.C. often last decades.

But, as expected, the record-breaking temperatures on Sunday were eclipsed on Monday, June 28.

Kamloops was the hot spot amongst the larger cities in the Thompson-Okanagan, hitting 45.8C, breaking Sunday’s record by 1.8C.

Kelowna hit 42.9C, up from 41.5 on Sunday. Penticton, which narrowly missed setting an all-time high record on Sunday, reached 42.5 on Monday, breaking its old all-time high record of 40.6 set on July 17, 1941.

No data was listed on the Environment Canada website this morning for Vernon.

Lytton, once again, broke the all-time high temperature for Canada of 46.6C that it set on Sunday. It reached 47.9 yesterday.

Forecasts call for Kamloops to reach 46C today before dropping to 43C tomorrow. The Okanagan is looking at 43C for today and tomorrow. Thursday should be a little less hot at 38 in both regions.

The high for Lytton is forecast at 48 today before dropping to 40 tomorrow.
