The Province of British Columbia is encouraging people to get prepared for upcoming high temperatures.

British Columbians can expect higher temperatures as a high-pressure ridge is moving into B.C. and may result in heat warnings this weekend or early next week.

Hot and dry weather for many parts of British Columbia is predicted by Environment and Climate Change Canada. While the current forecast suggests a dip in daytime high temperatures late this week, there is potential for the high-pressure ridge to ramp up this weekend and into next week, which may lead to higher temperatures.

However, B.C. is not currently anticipating an extreme heat emergency. People are encouraged to monitor Environment and Climate Change Canada for temperature forecasts in their region.
