FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The Peace River Region will see unseasonably hot weather beginning on Friday.
From Friday to Tuesday, the area will reach temperatures reaching the mid to high 20s, while overnight and early morning lows are expected by Environment Canada to be in the low to mid-teens.
According to the government agency, the highest temperatures are expected from Sunday to Tuesday.
Environment Canada also says freezing levels will rise throughout the event, increasing snowpack melting with possible local flooding due to high stream flow levels.
The risk of heat-related illnesses will increase during this time.
While the heat conditions may result in daily temperature records being broken, Environment Canada emphasizes that temperatures will not approach those reached during the “Heat Dome” of late June 2021.
Wednesday evening in Fort St. John shows a chance of showers and the risk of a thunderstorm with a low of nine degrees Celsius early in the evening.
Thursday sees a chance of showers or thunderstorms with a high of 21 degrees Celsius and a low of 11 degrees Celsius.
Friday to Tuesday is sunny, with a high of 32 degrees Celsius on Monday and a low of 11 degrees Celsius on Sunday.
