It’s a record many people likely didn’t want to break again.
The small community of Lytton B.C. has set a new all-time Canadian heat record for the second day in a row Monday.
The temperature reached 47.5 C Monday at 4 p.m. after reaching a temperature of 46.6 C Sunday.
Environment Canada said Monday this is still a preliminary number as heating may continue for another hour.
The previous record of 45 C was documented in Yellow Grass and in Midale, Sask., on July 5, 1937. The previous B.C. record of 44.4 C was set in Lytton in 1941.
Heat warnings remain posted across B.C. and Alberta, large parts of Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories and a section of Yukon as the weather office forecasts temperatures reaching 40 C in some areas.
More to come.
