First stretch of summer heat coming to BC Interior

First hot stretch of the summer for the BC Interior starts Saturday.
Sun

It looks like Prince George and area will get some summer heat starting Saturday.

The news comes to us through a Weather Network Alert in Effect because very quickly those temperatures in the upper 20s will work their way up to low to mid 30s early next week, which could cause some trouble.

With elevated temperatures, the risk of heat related illnesses increase and as far as what could happen in and around the area freezing levels rise throughout this event and will lead to an increase in snowmelt and snowpack instability.

That means there could be an increase in stream flows due to run-off.

Please refer to the British Columbia River Forecast Centre and Avalanche Canada for local messaging at http://bcrfc.env.gov.bc.ca/warnings/index.htm and

Temperatures are expected to return to near-normal values by the middle of next week as a cooler, unsettled air mass pushes onshore.
