Environment Canada says record-high temperatures have been measured in four B.C. communities this weekend, with a possibility of more to come.

Michel Gelinas, a meteorologist with the agency, says records were broken by about 1.3 C on average in Lytton, Pemberton, Lillooet and Kamloops.

The average high temperature in each community was about 40.5 C.

Here are the three hottest spots recorded by Environment Canada in B.C. for July 13, 2014:

  • Lytton climate station: 41.1 C
  • Ashcroft: 41 C
  • Kamloops Airport: 40.7 C

Gelinas says more records could be broken as more results come in.

In other areas that might not have been quite as scorching, Environment Canada temperature data going back several years exists.
