Canada recorded its highest ever temperature this week as the country continues to battle an unprecedented heatwave.
If you think it's hot in Montreal, be thankful you don’t live on the west coast.
A heat dome of high pressure has rewritten the record books across Canada triggering heat warnings and sending temperatures soaring to new highs including the benchmark temperature for Canadian heat.
According to Environment Canada, sixty temperature records fell Sunday in B.C., including in the Village of Lytton, where the mercury reached 46.6 C -- breaking the all-time Canadian high of 45 C, set in Saskatchewan on July 5, 1937.
Environment Canada warns the “prolonged, dangerous, and historic heatwave” could ease as early as Tuesday on B.C.'s south coast and in Yukon, but won't relent until mid-week, or early next week, elsewhere in Canada including in Montreal.
