It took tiny Lytton B-C just one day to beat its record for the hottest temperature ever measured in Canada.
The mercury in Lytton in the B-C interior yesterday hit 47.5 just a day after it set a record at 46.6.
Dozens of heat records have fallen in B.C. over the past few days as the so-called heat dome remains in place over much of the west.
Environment Canada warns extreme heat will remain in place for some time although parts of B.C. and Yukon may see a reprieve sooner.
