Valley Cool Down As Interior Wildfires Ramp Up

Fraser Valley – As we go through a cool down from the long heat wave (longest since 2009 with 10 days of over 30C) that doesn’t ean wildfire season is slowing down.

There have been a few highway grass fires caused by tossed cigarette butts. The situation in the interior is far more dire. Lightning sparked from the weather change is causing havoc.

24 hours of lightning strikes have triggered 300 fires. The Valley has been spared for the most part this tear. The Okanagan continues their watch especially near Cawston, Karemeos and rural Kamloops, and some focus has shifted to the Prince George Fire Centre and the Cariboo.

Weather models for the Fraser Valley are hinting that after the long weekend (BC Day) we could be in for another prolonged heat wave.
