Watches & Warnings

Special Weather Statement
Issued: Environment Canada
Special Weather Statement issued by Environment.  03:00 AM PDT Saturday 24 June 2017.
Hot weather is expected Sunday and Monday.  

A strong upper ridge of high pressure building over the province will result in a brief heat wave over the Kootenay District. Temperatures will peak on Sunday and Monday with maximums reaching the low to mid 30s. A few temperature records will likely be broken. Temperatures will begin to moderate on Tuesday as the upper ridge of high pressure weakens.


The risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors. 

Watch for the effects of heat illness: swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions. 

Drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a 
cool place. 

Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle. 

Get informed 
- Check the local news for health and safety updates. 
- For more information on heat-related illness, call HealthLinkBC at 811. 
- Contact your local government to find out what services (such as 
air-conditioned buildings and public splash parks) are available in your area.
