While Environment Canada is calling for a high of 28 Celsius today, June 3, throughout the valley, temperatures are expected to be above the 30 C mark Saturday through Tuesday. Tomorrow temperatures are forecast to hit at least 31 C and on Sunday a high of 36 C is expected. The beginning of the week temperatures of 34 C and 30 C are expected before cooling back off to temperatures in the high-20s.

The seasonal normal high for this time of year is 22 C and record highs range from roughly 33 C to 36 C for June 4 through June 7.

Overnight temperatures are also expected to remain above the seasonal normal of 10 C, with lows varying from 11 C tonight to just 16 C Sunday night.

MOVIE REVIEW: 'Wonder' is a sweetly sincere message movie
  OPINION It's hard for us cynical souls to walk into a movie advertised with the tagline "Choose kindness" and not shudder in trepidation. What sentimental hooey is this? What new hellish circle of cheese
