Special weather statement in effect for:

Metro Vancouver

Snow is possible today over many south coast locales....

Precipitation from the next Pacific front will arrive over the south coast Thursday morning. When precipitation begins, temperatures will be low enough that rain will be mixed with snow over communities near the coast. The major urban areas of the south coast will likely see their first snowflakes of the season. Accumulations near the coast are expected to be minimal and precipitation will change completely to rain by Thursday afternoon.

However, where cold air remains trapped over inland regions such as Howe Sound, Whistler, Inland Vancouver Island, and the eastern Fraser Valley, the snow will be longer lasting and more significant snow accumulations are forecast. At least 5 to 10 cm is expected over Inland Vancouver Island, Howe Sound and Whistler. The eastern Fraser Valley will see some snow but it is expected to begin later this afternoon and continue through this evening.

TTHE PUBLIC IS ADVISED TO MONITOR FUTURE FORECASTS AND WARNINGS AS
WARNINGS MAY BE REQUIRED.

PLEASE MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS AND WARNINGS FROM ENVIRONMENT

Special weather statement in effect for:

Fraser Valley - east including Chilliwack

Special Weather Statement:

An intense Pacific frontal system over the Central Coast will slowly move southward and reach the South Coast on Sunday.

This system is expected to spread rain to most communities near sea level. However, with current snow levels slightly above sea level precipitation will likely fall as snow at higher elevations. For western Fraser Valley, conditions are also favorable for the development of freezing rain overnight and Sunday morning.

Snowfall amounts with this event will be highly variable ranging from 2 to 10 cm depending on elevation and local terrain. Meteorologists are continuously reassessing this system and will update forecasts as required.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to pacificstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #BCStorm.

Apparently only Albertans can't handle the heat since the entire province is under a "heat advisory" that mysteriously disappears as soon as you leave the province.

Special weather statement in effect for:

Fraser Valley - east including Chilliwack
Fraser Valley - west including Abbotsford

A ridge of high pressure over Southern BC will continue to strengthen through the weekend. The ridge will bring warm air from the south resulting in above normal temperatures for the Fraser Valley and inland sections of Metro Vancouver. Sunday will likely be the hottest day during this hot spell with inland temperatures reaching up to 34 degrees.

The strong ridge will weaken and shift eastward on Monday. Temperatures over the Lower Mainland will begin to moderate early next week as cooler marine air spreads inland.

Special weather statement in effect for:

Fraser Valley - east including Chilliwack
Fraser Valley - west including Abbotsford

Prolonged Hot Weather

---------------------------------------------------------------------
==DISCUSSION==
Following a near-normal start to summer, temperatures across the South Coast of B.C. will climb into the low thirties over the next few days.

A large ridge of high pressure will continue to build along the coast allowing warm air from the western US to move northwards. The hottest day will be Thursday as the ridge reaches its peak strength with afternoon highs above 32 degrees in many inland locations. Temperatures along the water will be closer to 25 degrees. The circulation will gradually shift onshore beginning Friday allowing temperatures to subside by a few degrees. The higher than normal temperatures are expected to last into the middle of next week.

Coping with the heat:

There are many symptoms of heat-related illness including thirst,
dizziness, confusion, weakness and fainting/collapsing. Medical
Health Officers are reminding residents to protect themselves from
the heat.

1.Stay cool
2.Drink plenty of water
3.Check in on others
4.Never leave children or pets in a parked car
