Is it getting hot in here?

Monday was the hottest August 11 in Chilliwack on record since 1881.

It was also the 19th day of the summer with sizzling hot temperatures over 30 degrees.

The mercury actually hit 35.6 degrees Celsius on Monday, Aug. 11, according to Roger Pannett volunteer weather observer for Environment Canada. That's more than 10 degrees above normal and the previous record for that day was set in 1977 at 33.9 C.

It's also the hottest day in Chilliwack since the record maximum of 36 C on Aug. 14, 2010.

"To date in 2014 there has now been an unusual 19 high temperature records," said Pannett.
