Sunday hottest July 13 on record in Chilliwack

Overnight temperatures marked the highest minimum temperature since 1881

Sunday was the hottest July 13 on record in Chilliwack.

Sunday was the hottest day in four years in Chilliwack, and the hottest July 13 on record, says Roger Pannett, volunteer weather observer with Environment Canada.

The daytime temperature soared to 34.5 degrees on Sunday, topping the 33.9 degrees set on the same date in 1961.

It was also the warmest day of the year, beating the 34.3 degrees of record-breaking heat on Canada Day.

Still, it wasn’t the hottest day on record. That honour still belongs to July 29, 2009 when temperatures crested at 38.2 degrees on the second day of a record breaking three-day heat wave.

But Chilliwack did set a record for the hottest night. Temperatures early Monday morning only fell to 19.8 degrees, marking the highest minimum temperature since the 19.4 degrees set in 1881.

The warm weather is expected to continue until at least Thursday, when cooler temperatures and a chance of showers are expected to arrive.
