The risk of wildfires is about to go way up across southern BC over the next five days or so. Have a look at today’s blog item from Cliff Mass http://cliffmass.blogspot.ca/2015/06/the-wildfire-risk-is-rising-how-bad.html Much of what is saying for Washington State also applies to BC.
Much warmer temperatures are expected with a strong upper ridge of high pressure building on Thursday then persisting Friday through Sunday. Some locations in the Southern Interior and West Kootenays could hit 40 degrees! Then there is potential for an outbreak of lightning on Monday, maybe even as early as late Sunday. The forecast through to August calls for much above normal temperatures and below normal rainfall. This could turn out to be a very active fire season!
