Lytton, Canada, recorded a high of 46.6 degrees Celsius yesterday. The highest temperature ever in the country. Meteorological Canada, Environment Canada, reported this in a tweet on Sunday. The previous record was set on July 5, 1937. Then the temperature was 45.0 ° C in Yellow Grass and Midale. He probably won’t stop there, because even the highest extremes are expected in the coming days. For example, Lytton forecast 45°C on Sunday, 46°C on Monday and possibly 47°C on Tuesday.

It is a “thermal dome” responsible for severe weather. This is a high pressure dome that traps warm air underneath. This causes a heat wave that often lasts for days. To make matters worse, much of western Canada is experiencing a drought this season. So the sun has complete freedom to ensure extreme heat.
Heat alarms have been announced in three provinces, British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. Although this is not surprising, when temperatures are higher than in Dubai. Many schools are still closed today and buildings have opened where people without air-conditioning can go to cool off. Meteorologists expect the heat to move eastward from Tuesday, but the real cooling will have to wait until early July.
