Brace yourself, it is going to be a very hot week across the Okanagan.

Temperatures are expected to hover well over 30 C.

“We are looking at a really strong ridge of high pressure looking over southern B.C. for the next couple of days. Temperatures are probably going to be five to 10 degrees above normal for the most part,” said meteorologist Gregg Walters.

Environment Canada says they would declare a heat warning if temperatures reached 35 C for two consecutive days or higher, and overnight lows don’t drop below 18 C.

“It is definitely a possibility. It might be issued sometime Monday. It is just hovering around the values for a heat warning to be issued. Generally, we don’t like to issue them more than 24 hours in advance, but certainly the temperatures over a lot of the Southern Interior are quite warm,” Walters added.

Monday will see a high of 33 C with sunshine.

Tuesday is expected to reach a high of 34 C with sunshine all day.

Wednesday will climb to 36 C and sunshine.

Thursday will be the hottest day of the week at an intense 37 C with sunshine.

Sun is also in the forecast for Friday and Saturday with a high of 36 C.
