It's going to be another scorcher this week in Squamish, with the mercury reaching into the 30s to kick off the week.
Meteorologist Jason Ross says a ridge of high pressure from the Pacific will build over the South Coast this week with dry conditions and warming temperatures. The temperature gauge will hover in the 30-to-32 C range on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, before cooler marine air pushes onshore on Friday.
Environment Canada is forecasting 26 C for Monday, dropping to 10 C at night; Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are all forecast to hit a daytime high of 31 C before dropping to 13 C overnight. Meanwhile, temperatures are set to dip to 22 C during the day Friday, cooling to 15 C overnight. Friday also comes with a 40% chance of showers.
The hot and dry conditions come after a dry month of May for Squamish, with just 11.6 millimetres of total precipitation, making it the second driest May on record after May 1995, which saw just 10.66 mm of rain.
