The Bulkley Valley and Lakes District is expected to see a warm up this week according to Environment Canada.
Temperatures are anticipated to climb to the high 20’s during the first half of the week.
Meteorologist Bobby Sekhon said this is because of a ridge of high pressure building this week.
“It’s going to bring some warm temperatures. We’re going to see temperatures climbing into the high twenties Tuesday, Wednesday this week and then a bit of a decline as we head into the later part of the week but, temperatures still keeping steady in the mid twenties,” he said.
Sekhon added it is not expected that we will break temperature records but we still remain 5 or six degrees above normal.
He also said that it is hard to tell if this is a trend the region should expect to see for the rest of the month.
“It does look like a high probability of above average temperatures through the middle of August into almost the third week of August so, it looks like a generally warmer trend but then again it could be some cooler days,” Sekhon said.
He is also reminding residents to stay hydrated and to try to keep cool during higher temperatures.
The warmest day this week is expected to be on Wednesday where it is anticipated to reach 30 degrees.
