The hot August weather continues!

On August 17th, a high of 27.9°C was recorded at Gonzales Point, the second hottest since records began in 1940.

This record beat out the previous highest temperature of 27.8°C recorded in 1922. However, the hottest temperature ever recorded there was 30.6°C in 1940.

That is hot!

Earlier this week, Environment Canada issued a heat warning for Courtenay to Campbell River, Duncan to Nanaimo and Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay.

While warnings have not been issued for Greater Victoria, the forecast will see a return to hot weather with temperatures reaching 27°C before dropping to 20°C on Friday.

To help the public get through the heat, municipalities set up cooling stations to help residents keep comfortable.

So remember to stay cool while enjoying the heat!
