Environment Canada issues special warning for weekend hot spell

Summer heat for B.C.'s South Coast begins Friday 2:21

Parts of B.C.'s South Coast could set new daily temperature records this weekend when a period of hot and sunny weather blankets the region, reports CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe.

On Thursday temperatures rose back a seasonal 15 to 19 C across Metro Vancouver, but clouds have made for an overcast afternoon.

The sun will be back Friday though, and winds from the southern U.S are expected to warm up the region over the next few days.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the South Coast for the summer-like temperatures this weekend with a reminder to stay properly hydrated during exercise and to protect yourself from the strong UV rays.
