Think hot! Not just here – but all across the country and the U.S. The pink on the west and southwest of today’s map is severe weather warnings for excessive heat – ranging from the mid-30’s for Seattle to the high 40’s (and low 50’s) across the deserts all the way to Texas. (The reds and greens in the East are tornados and floods in case you were wondering.) At the same time we have forecast highs in the high 20’s to mid 30’s for pretty much all of our service areas in B.C. through to the mid-Prairies.
