Victoria hasn't had a heat wave in 76 years!

A heat wave is usually defined as a period of 3 or more consecutive days with temperatures of 32° C or higher. High HUMIDITY is not a requisite, yet most, but not the worst, heat waves are oppressively humid. By these criteria St John's and Vancouver have never experienced a heat wave, and Victoria has had only one, lasting 4 days in 1941.
